Well it’s the weekend here at Appi Kogen and we’re eagerly awaiting the masses to descend on the mountain as the Giant Slalom competition begins in earnest. Even if you’re not skiing this weekend it’s going to be a lot of fun so come and see these young hopefuls ski like crazy people. Be sure to get here early to get a good view.

As far as the weather goes it's currently cloudy, base temperature of -3 with steady light North Westerly winds. The temperature should creep up a little today to the zero zone and we may see a few centimetres of sporadic snowfall.

Yesterday was a strange day bringing snow, fog and windy conditions late in the afternoon. The fresh snow brought smiles to many faces but there was still the undercoat of ice from last weekend which could be felt after the wind picked up.

The next few days are going to get a little worse unfortunately with the wind picking up considerably tomorrow to the 16m/s range or 60kmh. Temperatures should be moderate but expect a nice wind-chill at the summit.

Come and see us and cheer for your favourite skier, they all deserve the applause.
