It is a beautiful sunny morning here at Appi with relatively calm winds.

Yesterday was cold, a little blustery in the afternoon with occasional flurries most of the day. The wind did pick up mid afternoon as advertised and coupled with the -11 temperatures made for a chilly afternoon on-piste.

Today should bring mostly sunny skies with temperatures at the base hovering in the -6 to -8 range. The winds have finally calmed more today so it should be a relatively decent day on the mountain. We still have only 11 of 21 runs open unfortunately and even with the 20+ cm of snow over the weekend there’s been no official word of more runs being opened any time soon.

The forecast for the next few days calls for steady winds, mostly cloudy skies and the occasional snow flurry. Like everyone else here we’re still wondering if this season is really going to get started any time soon.
