Good morning from a very sunny Appi Kogen,

Blue skies most of the day today with very light winds and temperatures at the base of -7. It should stay this way most of the day with temperatures rising steadily all day reaching +4 degrees by early evening. Yesterday was another bluebird day with winds a little gusty in the afternoon but that certainly didn’t spoil skiing. With relatively few people on the mountain it was a pleasure to explore all the runs again. They were in good shape overall with just a few patches of ice every now and again to keep you on your toes.

Unfortunately things are going to change for the worse overnight and we’re expecting another rainy day tomorrow with gusty winds, temperatures reaching +7 and heavy rain showers starting tomorrow afternoon. If you want a good day on the slopes you better pack your gear and come out today as we may be looking at one of the last decent days this year.

Spf50 is a must with the sun. See you out there.
