Sunny Appi Sunday.

It’s a beautiful sunny Sunday morning here at Appi. We’d rather have the snow but if you want to take pictures today is the day with great vistas available from the top of the mountain. Use the main gondola and head up to the peak. Walk over to the Yamabato run and just before you get there there’s a big sign with all the runs on it. Just to the right is a set of stairs. Make sure you go all the way up to the top though and you’ll get a 360 degree panorama shot like nothing else. Ok photo tips finished lets get back to the real stuff.

Yesterday made for sunny skies most of the day with light and variable winds at the base. No snow but a good day to be out there and LOTS of people. Conditions were as planned with an icy topcoat turning into slushy conditions at the base. The higher elevations managed to stay somewhat frozen.

Today brings sunny skies and relatively cold temperatures of around -10 on the summit. Conditions should remain the same most of the day with the clouds rolling in late this afternoon and there may, just may, be snow tonight. In fact we may see 6-7cm of it. Wouldn’t that be great !! Temperatures will remain steady for the next few days too but we’ll see an increase in winds on Tuesday. Don’t ask me what next weekends forecast is going to be because I think you know the answer already and I’m trying to avoid bad news today so I’ll get to that next week some time.

Enjoy the sun, enjoy the slopes and get out there. Don’t forget the sunscreen.
