Good Morning from Appi.

Yesterday was busy, cold and windy. The holiday crowd combined with limited open runs made for quite a squeeze on the hill yesterday. We did get a little snow on and off throughout the day which is certainly helping the base layer here. Todays sunny skies also brings another welcome surprise. They’re opening an additional run today! I know it's only one more but beggars can’t be choosers now can they.

The forecast for today calls for partly cloudy skies, temperatures still a chilly -6 to -10 at the base with very little if any snowfall. Now the crowds have all gone home you'll be able to enjoy a little more elbow room on the slopes.

The winds should die down a little but overall the next few days should be quite similar. We're looking for partly cloudy skies, relatively calm winds and temperatures hovering in the -8 to -10 range.
