Good Morning from Appi.

Well we've got more of the white powder falling as I type this report. It's only light snowfall though but it's exciting nonetheless. It should continue most of the day with hopefully 5cm+ arriving today.

The forecast yesterday was just another false alarm with barely 3cm falling throughout the day and evening. I'm really beginning to wonder if the 'forecasting' department even exists at the weather service here.

Today should bring cloudy skies, temperatures in the -5 range at the base with snow showers continuing most of the day. The wind has picked up slightly but will remain steady all day in the 8-10 m/s range. Obviously the top runs will see slightly higher winds and lower temperatures.

17 of 21 runs open and the Sailer Gondola and various Sailer and second runs still disappointingly closed. The open runs are in good condition and will probably see little use this week as the mountain was eerily quiet yesterday with me taking some runs as the solo figure on the hill.

So what's in store for us now? Not much unfortunately. The 'forecast' is for partly cloudy skies, temperatures dropping slightly with little, if any, snowfall till Monday! That's correct. No predicted further snowfall until February.

Have a great day out there.
