Good morning from Appi,

Another sunny start to the day here and fairly light winds to help things along. Yesterday afternoon turned into a typical Appi day with severely restricted visibility and gusty winds making the conditions poor.

We may see a smattering of snowfall late this afternoon and the forecast is still good for snow tomorrow night and into the 5th. Relatively stable temperatures in the -6 zone with winds picking up again tomorrow afternoon and into Saturday.

Most runs are open and are in good condition.
