Good morning from Appi,

The winds have finally settled down here and it looks like it’s going to be a great day on the mountain. The sun will be making an appearance today on and off again and what winds we have in the morning will die down even more in the afternoon.

Rising temperatures over the next few days and light winds forecast until Tuesday. Very little snow falling until Tuesday night with temperatures taking a dip at the same time.

The gondola should be a operation today hopefully. Perhaps it’s time to 'upgrade' it so it can actually operate when it’s a little windy! All the runs are open today and although they’ll be a little ice layer this morning it should be worked out by 10am with the sun making an appearance.

Enjoy the weekend up here as it’s bound to be a busy holiday weekend.
