Good morning from Appi, apologies for the late report.

Another windy snow filled night that dumped quite a few cm here... that’s a good thing. Extreme winds didn’t help on the slopes again with blizzard like conditions at the summit most of the day.

Clouds right now with moderate snowfall and those pesky westerly winds that are again making conditions less than ideal.

More snow in the forecast until the New Year with winds dropping to bearable and temperatures increasing somewhat into the minus single digits.
