Hello from Appi,

This morning doesn’t look good at all people. The winds are howling outside and we’ve got near whiteout conditions where I live let alone what’s happening on the mountain. We can expect this most of the day and I believe there won’t be many lifts operating at all. It’s going to be chilly for those brave enough to head onto the mountain and you can expect a wind chill factor of -25 at least.

Thankfully tomorrow the winds will die down and the temperatures should increase slightly here. We’re expecting cloudy skies most of the weekend but with that comes some snowfall in the 15-25cm range.

Monday sunny skies should prevail with light and variable winds heading our way.

*** Update: all lifts currently closed due to the conditions!
