Good morning from Appi,

Another cloudy-sunny day here and good news for those coming to join us. The Sailer quad lift is in operation today. The mountain is slowly coming to life and I'd like to say a big thanks to the guys working to make sure everything that can be open is.

Not much in the snow department but that's life right now. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday currently look very promising and maybe, just maybe, we can get more than 1/2 of the mountain open by next weekend. It should stay mostly sunny today with slope temperatures around -5 or so. Tomorrow brings calmer winds and sunny skies if the forecast is remotely accurate.

If you've been waiting to visit get off the couch and get up here..... every day wasted is another day closer to the end of the season !!!
