Well it’s another weekend here at Appi and it’s shaping up to be on par with most other weekends here.

We did see a few centimetres of snow last night but the base has remained steady for a while now because of the afternoon winds sweeping away what fell. Hopefully today with the winds supposed to calm down somewhat tonight and tomorrow coupled with a forecast 15cm of snow tonight we will see a wonderful Sunday morning for some fresh powder skiing. I’m eagerly anticipating my alarm clock tomorrow.

As far as yesterday goes it was ok. Most of the runs are in good shape with the groomed runs bringing fun before lunch before they’ve been chewed up somewhat. The Sailer and Second runs were fairly deserted most of the day but you can anticipate a decent crowd on them today and tomorrow.

Weather forecasting wise it looks great for Sunday and morning till noon. Temperatures should rise somewhat into the zero zone and winds should become very light this afternoon and into tomorrow night. They’ll pick up again Sunday night and should be strong on Monday and Tuesday. We’re talking 15m/s strong with gusts a little higher. Snowfall is what I’m concerned about and we may see nearly 30cm fall the next few days. How much of it stays around is anyone's guess right now given the windy conditions heading our way.

The good news today is that the Main and Sailer Gondolas are open until 4:30PM, probably because of the increasing daylight.

Come on up and get on the slopes. See you all out there.
