Yesterday was a day of continuous snowfall, albeit light snowfall.

This morning brings another steady stream of light snow which later in the afternoon should become steadier. The gusty winds have abated again this morning and should further decrease during the week. The forecast is looking extremely promising with a supposed 5+cm coating today and further accumulations all through the weekend hopefully enabling Appi to open more runs.

The mountain still only has 8 of 21 runs open so we’ll need quite a dumping of snow to open up the higher level and Southerly runs.

Fun Fact of the Day:

While Appi seems to have two names for the same runs on the mountain there is indeed only one that is correct. The Sailer (correct spelling) is the right name for the runs on the south eastern side of the mountain, not sailor. These runs are named after Toni Sailer, an Austrian, who was the first skier to win 3 gold medals in the same Olympic games... what a feat! Perhaps Appi could use the snowfaring version instead of the seafaring one when correctly name the runs, Toni Sailer deserves the respect after all! :)
