What should have been a mostly sunny day yesterday pleasantly turned in to a steady light snowfall day with 5cm of accumulation during the day and overnight.

With the temperatures now dropping steadily we’re hoping for a continued steady accumulation the rest of the week and with the forecast of heavy snowfall on Wednesday Appi may decide to open more runs this coming weekend, fingers crossed!

Blustery conditions on the mountain are making for awfully cold -20 wind-chill temperatures but the wind should die down later in the week making the mountain a little more welcoming. Today we’re expecting intermittent snowfall with mostly cloudy and gusty wind conditions, temperatures ranging from a high of -5 to a low of -10.

Still only 8 of 21 runs in operation with the gusty conditions affecting the only sailor run in operation because of the start/stop nature of the gondola. Hopefully the rest of the week will see decreasing winds and a steady rise in snowfall.

Currently operating lifts:

- Appi Gondola
- Central Number 1 quad
- Number 2 lift A
- Number 2 lift B
- Number 3 lift B
- Number 4 lift
