Good morning from Appi,

It’s a cloudy and a very windy day here at Appi. Snow fall overnight and continuing most of the day today and for the next few days. Th temperature has taken a sudden turn south and it’s minus double digits for the next few days.

Nearly all the runs are scheduled to be open on the resort but you can expect near white out conditions at the summit with a windchill of around -25... thats COLD!

At the time of writing though the Gondola and top areas are closed due to the windy conditions. Right now just the Central Number 1, Central Number 2, Sailer connecting and Sailer Number 2 lifts are operating. Looks like there is some kind of trouble with the Central quad lift again.

The forecast is looking good for snow up until New year and the winds may dies down over the weekend.
