Good morning from Appi,

This Sunday morning bring partly cloudy skies and a rather warm -2 degrees outside my door. We had a little snow yesterday that will help and Appi has increased the base level to 150cm.

The light winds today should make it feel a little warmer on the mountain, although -8 is still -8. The temperatures will be on the decrease all week bottoming out at -15 or so by Wednesday. With the wind that’s forecast I don’t think I’ll be heading out that day.

Snowfall wise we’re expecting quite a bit heading our way with it starting tonight and perhaps 20+cm by tomorrow afternoon. Tuesday may bring some very light snow showers but it’s Wednesday that’s got me excited again. 30+cm in the forecast.

Expect fairly heavy crowds today and enjoy yourself.
