Good morning from Appi.

Well it snowed yesterday and overnight again giving us some snow that’s stayed around. The official depth has gone up to 150cm and we should see another 10cm throughout the day too.

This morning it’s fairly chilly outside at -7 with a bunch of fresh powder covering everything. The snowblower can wait till this afternoon as it looks like another morning session on the hill. Temperatures will remain steady and the wind may drop in intensity throughout the day.

Yesterday was a fun day on the hill. The fresh snow on the runs added to the excitement but the gusty winds in the 60kmh zone spoiled things after lunch somewhat not only making it a little chilly but stopping the chair lifts and gondolas from time to time.

Todays forecast still shows gusty winds until noon-ish then it should taper off somewhat through the night hours. Tomorrow, if you like the sun, should be great with light winds forecast coupled with sunshine all day. Temperatures are forecast to increase somewhat into the -2 zone. The good news is the rain is supposed to wait until Saturday night now before it ruins the rest of the weekend. Sunday will be bring more rain and windy conditions so if you’re heading out you better do it today, tomorrow or early Saturday morning.

That’s all for now, I’ve got some runs to inspect.
