Good morning from a chilly Appi.

The temperatures have taken a bit of a tumble since yesterday and outside my place right now it’s reading -10... with the wind at blowing somewhat at 8m/s it certainly feels a little colder. There’s some very light snow falling too but it certainly won’t help much if at all with the base. The sun is supposed to peak its head out around mid day and we’re expecting snow showers into the evening hours. The wind chill at the higher elevations will be in the -20 to -24 range. Appropriate clothing would be desirable.

The next few days remain the same with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures and wind both steady at -10 and 9m/s respectively. The extended forecast doesn’t give us much hope for more snow so lets hope the forecasters are wrong about that too.

As far as the mountain goes most runs are open and the Sailer gondola should be in operation again today. Expect some icy crud this morning and late afternoon as the surface freezes over. Late morning and early afternoon should make for some decent conditions on the hill.

Enjoy the last day of January here at Appi and lets pray February brings us a deluge of snow!
