Good morning from Appi,

What an absolutely amazing snow day yesterday !! I think I’m understating the 52cm of fresh snow yesterday and last night. It was kind of hard to put a firm number on it given the winds that we had. Heavy snow fall all day until the wee hours of the morning. With the strong winds and wind chill temperatures of -30 something on the mountain it made for rough going whether you were skiing, driving or heaven forbid walking. Only 3 lifts were in operation yesterday due to the conditions and sometimes we were down to two - today is a different story though.

All planned lifts and gondolas should be in operation today. Right now snow falling, relatively light winds and a temperature of -6 outside my window. Warming temperatures over the weekend and sunny skies should bring fairly big crowds this weekend too.

For those who are here today you can expect a brilliant day out there... Mt.Nishimori will be a great spot for those who enjoy waist deep powder and the Sailer and Second runs after grooming will be a cruisers delight.

Get up, get ready, and get out here. See you on the mountain.
