Good morning from Appi,

The last few days here have been a weather roller coaster ride to say the least.

From sunny skies on Sunday, torrential downpours on Monday and blizzard like conditions yesterday, today seems kind of normal with moderate snowfall, light winds and -3 degrees.

This week is all over the map again with winds and lots of snow followed by a significant amount of rain. The forecasts are usually wrong over 50% of the time here but they nailed the last 4 days for sure.

I’m sure it would be a good day up in the mountain today - if the gondola was working, but it’s not! You can spend over 40 minutes catching 3 lifts and not even reaching the summit.... there’s a lot of frustration this season with the gondola and even second and sailer area lifts working so sporadically; it’s frustrating to just to find out 1/2 of the mountain is closed. Perhaps there’s a plan that no one has deciphered yet to figure out what days, if any, the whole mountain will be open.

Arrive together, Ride together..... if you’re coming !

------

Apologies for the disruption to our reports from Appi at the moment. We hope to be back with normal updates soon.
