Hello from Appi and the 20/21 Season!

First of all, apologies for the delay.

This year has been tumultuous to say the least but that has not deterred us from pushing ahead and making the most of what we have...

Appi officially opened on Friday with one run open.....It’s a good start considering the snowfall at most resorts. Plenty of change is happening at Appi this season with a variety of new tracks, new snow park and new dining opportunities. We’ve actually joined the 20th Century and offer E-gates now! That’s right......no more waiting for those paper tickets with a few hundred of your closest friends in the cold.

I’m not sure what’s going on with the various tickets on offer this season but it's confusing to say the least. I certainly hope Appi drops it’s lift only ticket and lift/gondola ticket... I think that would make it the only resort in the free world that charges more to use the gondola to get up the mountain. In my book a day pass is a day pass to let me ski the entire mountain without hinderance - I don’t want to take 3 lifts to the top when all my friends are on the gondola waving at me freezing to death! Let’s hope this changes and quickly.

Weather wise the week ahead looks fine with some sporadic snowfall and temperatures between -1 and -5 until the weekend. On and off sunny days with not much change in the wind. Fingers crossed for more snowfall before the season really kicks in for every resort.

That’s all for today....Come and join us and brush off the cobwebs. Any day on the slopes is a good day.

Please a reminder: Social distancing is in full effect and will help us ALL get through these difficult times.

Arrive together.......Ride Together......Maintain your distance and please, please wear a mask in social areas.

In terms of snowfall up until now this season:

November: 45cm over the last 2 weeks of the month
December: 35cm during the first 2 days of the month

The November total is being reported in a report dated 30th November 2020; the December total being reported in this report.

Apologies for the 'bulk reporting'.

'2020' presented some special problems.

Hopefully updates should be smooth from now on... sometimes in this early season and daily from later this month.
