Hello from Appi,

Cloudy skies, moderate snowfall as I type this and a temperature of -2 outside my door. We can expect the same conditions here most of today with the wind picking up late this afternoon and evening. Snowfall wise we may see 12cm today and another 5 or so tomorrow. The rain that we may have expected today thankfully started away with the just below freezing temperature.

The temperatures are supposed to fall overnight and into tomorrow to about -8 with cloudy skies forecast until Sunday afternoon with the winds abating somewhat Saturday and Sunday.

Overall the mountain is in good shape with Mt.Nishimori showing some patches of brown through the snow. We may only have a few weeks left on those particular runs but the Second and Sailer runs are great with the snow today certainly helping.

Enjoy the snow and get out there and have some fun.
