Hello from Appi,

Cloudy skies today with some light snow falling and a temperature outside of -2. We can expect the same conditions most of today with around 2-4 cm of additional snow falling.

Stable temperatures over the weekend of around -5 and some light snow flurries await those venturing up here. For those staying longer than the weekend we may be in for a surprise with up to 50cm supposedly coming our way from Monday to Wednesday. Let keep our fingers crossed that it comes.

Overall the runs are in good shape with very few threadbare patches to annoy you.

Have fun up there.
