Good morning from Appi.

Well it’s another iffy day here. I woke to gusty winds, rain and snow falling. Not a great combination but it’s here nonetheless. Todays forecast calls for much of the same but hopefully the winds may die down late this evening and provide us with a decent amount of snow. Lets hope it stays around for a few days if it comes at all.

The next few days are all over the map again with the forecast changing on an hourly basis. My guess would be more clouds, wind and maybe a little snow. I know it’s not much to go with but honesty is the best policy. At least we’ll be in the minus zone as far as the temperature goes meaning not too much slush to contend with.

As far as the gondola, lift and open runs go that’s not good news either. Currently the Main Gondola, Sailer and Second Gondola are suspended. I would assume it’s due to the high winds but we did have some rock fall on a few of the runs due to the unstable conditions which hve affected some of the runs too. There’s no real way to get to the summit as of now but at least the T bar is operating on the North side and the Sailer Quad if you were lucky enough to get stuck over there. I really hope conditions improve especially for the kids who are coming to take part in the 10th National School Kids Alpine event which starts tomorrow and goes till Friday.

Bundle up if you’re heading out.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
