Well its the weekend and we currently have cloudy skies with a temperature of -7. The wind is calm as usual although it will pick up this afternoon to around 50km/h at the summit.

We’re expecting sporadic snowfall most of the day and into tomorrow with the westerly winds picking up pace into Wunday.

Hopefully most of the runs are open today unlike the weekdays where Appi has chosen to close certain sections of the mountain. That’s not good news for the season pass holders who expect the whole mountain to be open and get 50% of what they are paying for. Hoping this changes moving forward into the rest of the season.

We’ve had a fair amount of snow this week and you can expect long lines for the gondola and base lifts given social distancing requirements.

Next week will be warming up with a temperature of +1 expected on Wednesday. As far as snow goes we should get a little more starting midway through next week and into next weekend.
