Good morning from Appi,

It's snowing outside my door and we can expect around 25cm of the stuff if the forecast is correct. Unlike last year where the forecasting was poor at best it seems we have a new keen bunch helping us out and so far they’ve been spot on... keep it up. Around 5cm last night and early this morning so far.

The temperature is -2 outside but that’s going to sink like the Titanic tonight and we should see -14 or so by Wednesday. Not a pleasant time to be skinny dipping for sure. The good news is lots more snow is heading our way so whenever you get here I can guarantee you’re going to be smiling.

All the runs are in good shape although Appi is doing things on the cheap again and tends not to groom most of the runs after the weekend. Lets hope Chinese New Year celebrations will lift their spirit and get them out there grooming what needs to be groomed.

See you up on the slopes.
