Good morning from Appi,

What started off as a bluebird day changed in about 20 minutes and now we’re looking at cloudy skies with some very light snowfall. The sun keeps trying to peek through but is fighting a losing battle. The winds may pick up late afternoon making it a little chilly at the summit. As far as snow goes we could get another 15cm today with much more still forecast at the weekend starting late Saturday.

We may see a warming spell here as temperatures at the base rise to around -3 tomorrow. Cloudy skies are also in the forecast for the next week or so with relatively stable winds around 10-15m/s.

The mountain is in great shape although I wish they would have left a little more ungroomed after the deluge of snow we received a few days ago. They have a penchant for grooming almost everything here when it would be so much more fun at least for the first few hours of the day. That being said all the groomed runs are in excellent shape.
