Good Saturday morning from Appi.

As I write this it is partly cloudy with some very light snowfall. Later this afternoon the clouds should disappear giving way to sunny skies with average base temperatures in the -6 degree range. The wind should cooperate today and die down also in the afternoon making for a good day out there. With 17 of 21 runs open and the mountain should be fairly busy today. As always make sure your wrapped accordingly as this mornings temperatures at the peak combined with the wind will make for a finger numbing experience.

Yesterday came out as planned with very little snowfall and non that added anything to our accumulation statistics. The wind whipped up in typical style here mid afternoon making the mountain even more desolate.

The forecast for the next few days calls for a smattering of snow later tonight and into tomorrow. Winds fairly light and variable with temperatures fairly steady at -7. All in all the mountain is in good shape with very little vegetation poking its ugly head through the base layer. The runs are in good shape overall but you can expect a little ice this morning until the runs get worn in a little.

Have a wonderful weekend.
