Just a great bluebird day here at Appi with very light winds….sunscreen a plus.

Yesterday was mostly cloudy with just a light sprinkling of snow but nothing to add to the base. The clouds should roll back in tonight dropping a few cm of snow. The temperature is scheduled to increase a little into the weekend but lets hope it doesn’t get in the plus figures a few days before Xmas.

Fairly light winds most of the week increasing to fairly gusty condition by the evening of the 24th and into the 25th. That and lowering temperatures should bring us a nice windchill of at least -20….

Enjoy the slopes…only 2 more days till the whole mountain opens.
