Hello from Appi,

Yesterday was opening day here and apart from only one lift operating there were lots of people here to enjoy the day. I managed to get on one of the first lifts and can say the staff here have been working very hard to get the resort open. The open run was groomed and perfect of a day refresher to get the legs working again. All in all a great day out for those that came.

More lifts should open this coming week with the additional snowfall and we will certainly let you know what's available.

As far as the forecast goes it's not looking too bad. Every day but today it's forecast to snow with the majority of it arriving Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Temperatures are firmly in the minus zone of around -5 or so all day. The winds are forecast to pick up slightly on Thurs and Saturday but not the gale force stuff we had last week.

Dust off your skis/boards and come and join us. It looks like a great Season is in store for us.
