Good morning from Appi,

It's the first real weekend here and we have some great news. Most of the runs are open today!

We have the sun breaking through which should give us a beautiful day on the mountain. Temperatures unfortunately may be in the plus zone but will start decreasing for the next few days. Snow is in the forecast starting on the 26th when it’s supposed to deliver 20+cm. Lets wait and see.

Expect the resort to be busy today. We’ll have a report on the run conditions in the next few reports.

Have a great day out there.
