Good morning from Appi,

Alternating sun and clouds this morning, which we can expect to last through till Sunday. We’ll also see a warming trend for the next few days and maybe rise back into the plus zone again. No snow in the forecast for 3 days !

A decent amount of snow fell yesterday which has helped tremendously. The wind, in typical Appi fashion, said hello after lunch making it a chilly day at the summit. Limited runs still open here as the second runs are still looking threadbare.

All but the lower lifts on hold at the start of the day.

Current planned lift operations (subject to change):

- Appi Gondola
- Central Quad lift
- Central Number 2 lift
- Central Number 3 A

---

Official snow depth (as reported by resort):

- 65cm (after grooming)
