Good morning from Appi,

It’s a winter wonderland here at Appi Kogen. Yesterday and overnight we saw a LOT of snow. Around 40cm in total. While it looks like a great sight from my dining room window rest assured it won’t be too pleasant of a day out there on the mountain. The winds have been blowing since late afternoon yesterday and are still blowing right now. Wind chill at the summit will be a frosty -34 or maybe colder.

As far as the rest of the day goes it’s cloudy skies with more snow falling and tomorrow more of the same. The temperatures today are going to be cold no matter where you are on the mountain. Expect an average of -8 to -10. If you are coming please bring a lot of layers to wear.

Temperatures should increase tomorrow which should help somewhat but as of now the lifts that are operating are limited due to the heavy snowfall and winds. It’s going to take a bit of work to clear it up but as soon as the mountain opens expect a fantastic time.
