Appi Wednesday,

Another terrific day and evening worth of snow here at Appi. Yesterday was just a constant flow of snow which was great until the sun went down and the wind picked up making a terrific blizzard like drive home for those that stayed the whole day.

Today we’ve got cloudy skies, light snow falling with a light wind which should pick up again this afternoon. There shouldn’t be much accumulation today but the forecast has been terribly wrong before so we’ll have to wait and see.

As far as runs go they are still in limited supply but we can expect the whole mountain to open on the 24th and for those that venture our way you can expect one the best days of the year with all that fresh snow waiting for the first runs.
