Good Morning from Appi,

I thought the snowfall most of the day yesterday was great but when I woke up this morning and wiped the sleep out of my eyes it was a sight to behold. I'm being a little conservative when I say we had 35cm of powder dumped on our little corner of the world.

It's still dumping outside with no end in sight. I'd say we'll probably get another 30-40 cm today and the same overnight. Now that I have your attention let's talk about the rest of the week too. By Saturday morning Appi should have another 100cm of fresh snow. With that much snow coming I could bet that most, if not all, of the mountain will be open for business. That's excellent news for everyone.

Temperatures right now are around -4 at the base with the wind reducing that considerably at the summit.

Unfortunately we still are in limited operations on the mountain itself but that's going to change very quickly. I'm sure the main gondola operations may be interrupted somewhat today with the winds too. For this of you coming today you're in for a very nice powdery day out there.

That's all for now. I've got to find my snowblower, it's under all that white stuff somewhere !!
