Another cloudy day here at Appi with westerly winds and a temperature of -2 right now. Yesterday we saw some rain arrive which is not going to help but at least with the falling temperatures late in the afternoon it turned to wet snow.

We can expect mostly cloudy skies for the whole week ahead and hopefully temperatures in the minus zone. As far as snowfall goes don’t expect much, perhaps a few cm spread out over the rest of the eek and into the weekend. Winds may pick up slightly during the week but drop for the weekend ahead.

All runs are open but given the thawing taking place during the day they re somewhat icy in the early morning. Lets face it though it’s still better than last year right!
