Good morning from Appi,

Light snow most of the evening and into this morning. It should add a good powder layer to the runs today. The forecast hasn’t changed much either for the next few days with a smattering of snow forecast and stable westerly winds. The temperatures may warm slightly into the weekend but are still firmly in the minus zone.

All the runs are in good condition and Mt. Nishimori should offer a great ungroomed day for the adventurers.
