Good morning from Appi.

No fresh snow, but a lot of rainfall. It’s a bit dreary today with grey clouds and rain around the base, with light snow from about halfway up the mountain (and the resort is reporting 5cm).

The wind is staying at bay thus far, though it may pick up to a breeze this afternoon.

Unfortunately, yesterday saw torrential rain around the base. There were moments of snow which melted upon contact. The snow around the top of the mountain was heavy and laden with moisture. Not a windy day, but there were lift closures due to a lightning storm, something new at least.

Today all lifts are operating planned.
