Last race day here at Appi.

Yesterday provided great entertainment for those who ventured out. Lots of flag waving, cheering and generally all round good times. Although the race run needed work between racers it was in ok shape, much better than the previous day that is. No matter which prefecture these racers cam from they all had the crowd supporting them.

Back to the mundane stuff. Cloudy skies today, temperature at the base of -6 with light snow forecast this afternoon. The wind has increased since yesterday but shouldn’t make your fingers and face freeze over like some days have this year. Things are looking to remain the same over the next few days too with perhaps a slight increase in temperature till Friday. We shouldn’t expect too much snowfall and winds should remain steady all week.

I can say in all honesty that while this years snowfall, or lack thereof, has disappointed most and the late start to the season coupled with the strangest rain days, it has still been fun on the mountain. True we haven’t had many massive dumps of powder but any day that you’re out there on the mountain heading down the long groomed Yamabato run, or doing Mach 3 down one of the Sailer or Second runs, or holding on for dear life on the moguls, it is surely better than ANY day stuck inside the office or home. So get up, get out and come and join us here. I’m sure you’ll be smiling at the end of the day.

I’m heading back out to see the last day of racing. Good luck to all the young hopefuls on the hill today.
