Hello from Appi,

Well what a day yesterday was. It started with nearly white-out conditions and basically turned into kind of blueish skies if you looked up but the wind made it impossible to see anything straight ahead because of the blowing snow at the surface. Yes it was also cold and Appi basically came to a standstill as all of the lifts were not in operation.

Today thankfully is a much better scene here instead of flashbacks to “The Shining”. Cloudy skies but relatively light winds and some light snow falling. Temperatures firmly in the minus zone of around -8. We’re anticipating more snow all day with the bulk of it coming this evening. Hopefully we should see another 15-20cm of it. Sunday looks similar but Monday and Tuesday may bring Bluebird conditions here which should offer spectacular views on the backside range and Iwate san.
