Hello from Appi,

It’s the weekend again here and we’re expecting another decent crowd given the conditions we have. Right now cloudy skies and a temperature of -2. The winds have picked up slightly overnight and you may get the occasional gust at the summit.

The rest of the weekend will remain the same with partly cloudy skies and fairly light winds. We may see the occasional snow flurry next week but nothing of consequence.

Overall the runs are in great shape still, albeit with a little morning ice that should thaw out by mid day.
