Good morning from Appi,

Well, not a good morning to wake up to today. A little rain overnight and higher than seasonal temperatures yesterday washed away 10cm of the official base layer. I don’t anticipate any more rain today thank goodness and the temperatures by mid afternoon should be back to normal around -6 or something close.

The good news today is we should get a fair amount of snow starting by mid day and continuing throughout the night. We may even see 25+cm today if we’re lucky.

Cloudy skies for the next few days with brisk winds and summit temperatures of -10 making it fairly chilly at the summit.

Today you can expect a fair bit of ice in the morning covering most runs but they should be in good shape as by mid morning.

Have fun up there.
