Good morning from Appi.

The Gondola is moving. And to celebrate, 20cm of fresh snow on the ground.

Oh yes, and the Yamabato, upper area of Sailer Long course to the Sekirei course. So there is more to enjoy.

It's a nice morning too with some sunshine, though a bit of wind.

The forecast from early next week is looking good for continued snow (not so much over the weekend).
