Good morning from Appi!

We have had another 10cm of fresh snow.

At present the wind is still with sun and a few clouds around. In particular the top of the mountain has limited visibility but clears about half way down. More snow is forecast from mid morning. The sun is out but there is a good chill in the air, sitting around -3 degrees at the moment.
Yesterday was cloudy with snow showers, which turned into consistent snowfall around 2.30pm.

The colder temperatures have meant the piste is hard and fast, great for carving.

Today all lifts are operating as normal.
