Good morning from Appi.

It’s a wild one here today. At present most lifts are being assessed for opening, but only the central first chair is operating due to persistent, extremely high winds. There has been fairly consistent snow since yesterday, adding another 9cm since the last count. At present it is a mix of light snow, cloud and the occasional appearance from the sun.

The snow started yesterday in the early afternoon, giving the whole mountain a good coating of light, fresh powder. The wind was light but gained a lot of strength last night.

If you can get to the mountain top, there will be powder galore. Currently -1 but it feels a lot colder with the wind.
