Good morning from Appi,

Another sunny day here at Appi Kogen and views that will take your breath away. Although it’s cold at the summit, around -10 plus the windchill, the views of surrounding area and especially Mt.Iwate are spectacular. So what does that mean on piste? Not much but at least you’ll have something else to enjoy today.

Sunny skies most of the day with the clouds creeping on late afternoon and hopefully more snow this evening and early tomorrow. Sunday does look promising and the snow forecast calls for up to 25+cm so fingers crossed everyone.

As far as the runs go it’s in fair shape. Expect most of the runs to be groomed today and light traffic on them. Yesterday was an adventure, especially on the Second and Sailer runs where no grooming took place overnight. Today they should have a little corduroy on the especially this morning. A few of the ski only runs are also closed because of racing. Good luck to all the competitors!

Come and join us before the weekend crowds and bring sunscreen.
