Good morning from Appi.

A sprinkling of frost around but no real snow to report.

It’s cool and breezy today at Appi with a temp of -3. It definitely feels like an extra-layer day. There is a trickle of cloud lurking around the summit at present, but it looks to clear up, with blue sky in the distance.

Yesterday was a heavy powder day, more moisture and a warmer night meant it wasn’t the fluffy powder we know and love, but still good fun. It was cloudy most of the day with occasional, light snow showers.

Today all lifts are operating as normal.

---

The Sailer quad lift will not be operating through Thursday this week - some kind of maintenance. In the meantime, the Sailer Number 2 lift will be operating.

---

APPI is open with the following lifts normally operating (subject to change):

- Appi Gondola
- Central quad lift
- Central Number 2 lift
- Central Number 3A lift
- Central Number 5 lift
- Nishimori lift
- Sailer Number 2 lift
- Vista quad lift

- All normal courses at APPI are open
- Dragon tail, Cruise 1, Cruise 2, Bravo, Attack tree run courses are normally open
- Subject to lift operations & weather conditions
