Good morning from race day here at Appi Kogen!

The conditions are less than perfect but it’s going to be a rowdy day here on the mountain with all the racing going on. Good luck to all the racers today.

As far as race conditions go... well... like the rest of the season so far it’s marginal at best. We had a whole lot of rain last night and even though it’s snowing a little right now the mountain and race course is going to be a little mushy. The temperature should lower overnight making the current slush that we have into a nice icy mess. At least we should get some snow to cover the ice so it won’t be that noticeable. The winds will hopefully die down too overnight bringing some light snow off and on all day.

Thursday evening is threatening to bring a much needed 15cm of fresh powder but with temperature forecasts all over the place again lets wait and see what happens.

I’m heading up the hill to see these guys/girls in action. Will report on the fun tomorrow.
