Good morning from Appi,

It’s relatively clear today with the sun making an appearance that will make it feel warmer than it really is. Windy conditions all day long with 65+km/h at the summit dropping to 45km/h at the base.

Most runs should be open today although with the winds you can expect the gondola to be in sporadic operation.

The runs that are open still need more snow to cover up the “scruffy” edges. Lucky for us we should get another 20+cm of snow starting this afternoon and into tomorrow. The winds will be a little stronger tomorrow, if that’s even possible, blowing up to 75+km/h with windchills around -36.

Covid Rules and Social Distancing measure in full effect. Arrive together, Ride Together.
