Good morning from a very sunny Appi Kogen.

Yesterday’s afternoon winds forced many people off the mountain early with the gusts reaching up to 20M/S in some places. That combined with bone chilling -20 degree temperatures did not make for a pleasant day at all. Thankfully the winds won’t be back for a while as the coming forecast calls for decreasing winds and rising temperatures.

It’s a beautiful sunny day today and temperatures should reach a high of around -6 at the base and -8 at the top. Winds should be light with a possible afternoon increase in typical Appi fashion but will die out significantly into the early evening. Unfortunately no snow fall is predicted today so make sure you’ve got plenty of sunscreen in your backpack !!

No more additional runs are open today but I’m hoping the forecast of a massive amount of snow coming our way Monday and Tuesday (60cm +) will make sure Appi is finally completely open. I hope you’re as excited as I am about the forecast and I’m praying they’re going to be a little more than 50% right this time.

Have a great sunny day on the slopes.
