Appi Friday everyone.

First news of the day is I have NO idea about the forecast as it’s been all over the map the last few days. Today says it’s going to be -2 yet it’s -13 at the top of the mountain. Tomorrow says it’ll be 9 degrees - no idea how that’s happening and lets hope it doesn’t happen at all especially with the rain that it’s supposed to bring.

As for today its a beautiful sunny clear day. Base temperature is -8 and the wind isn’t even worth mentioning. A good day certainly to be enjoying the nicely groomed runs and taking some scenic pictures while you’re at it. Expect mostly sunny skies all day with clouds arriving late this afternoon.

The forecast is, well, not that promising but I’m holding out that is wrong like so many times this year. Please be wrong. If it does come true we’re in for a ugly weekend here and that’s an understatement. Forecasting a ton of rain, high temperatures and gale force winds. Not a pleasant environment to ski in let alone do anything else. I feel like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz clicking my heels wishing I were somewhere else. So batten down the hatches, wipe off the canoe and be prepared for Noah-like rain. How's that to end on a positive note? It might be wrong though!

Enjoy this perfect day, things are about to change.
