Good morning from Appi,

Well what a day we had yesterday. Moderate snowfall most of the day and blowing winds made for an eventful day indeed. Near white out conditions at the summit all day with the lifts struggling to stay in operation. At one point we were down to one lift.

This morning the winds are still blowing and temperatures are still in the negative double digits. Most runs should be open today, lets hope the lifts are in operation to the you to them.

Bundle up its going to be at least -25/30 wind chill today.
