Good morning from Appi.

More snow to report from Appi - just under 10cm yesterday and another 15cm this morning, so 24cm being added to the report this morning. Really nice quality snow too.

Today is the first proper day of the season here and they have 6 lifts planned to be operating, though it looks like the Gondola and top lifts are on hold at the moment due to wind conditions. Hopefully they will be able to get moving.

Once they are all moving, there'll be a decent amount of terrain opening up. And great to see that happening so early in the season.

What's more, the forecast is looking really good. Check it out from the link at the top of the page.

Planned lift operations for 2nd December 2017 (subject to change):

- APPI Gondola
- Central quad
- Central number 1 lift
- Central number 2 lift
- Central number 3 lift (A)
- Central number 4 lift

Official snow depth:

70cm
