Appi Days !!! Sorry for the blatant enthusiasm of this mornings report.

All our dreams have come true here with another conservative 45cm of snow yesterday and perhaps another 40+ today. Good times this week here at our little mountain.

By Friday we should have over 100cm of fresh powder dumped over the last 5 days. Exciting and so very welcome.

Heavy snowfall all day today again and temperatures around -5 at the base. The wind will pick up slightly possibility making conditions on the hill somewhat restricted so check with the resort for the latest on lifts.

Yesterday was a wonderful powdery day but the winds didn't help any and the visibility at times was close to zero.

By the weekend the weather should clear, most of the mountain will be open (maybe) and the season will really kick off.
