Today is the official beginning of winter. Sure, winter isn’t here on the calendar yet, but you can have your pass picture taken at the HR Ski/Gear swap today or tomorrow. As far as I’m concerned, ski season starts once my digital image is contained on a MHM hard drive.
Now for a shameless plug. While you’re up getting your picture taken, pick up a ticket for the Hood River Snow Show on November 21st. IPS, 2nd Wind, MHM, and I have put in a ton of work into putting this party together. We’ll have ski and snowboard movies, music by Area 54, and sick raffle prizes (Line skis, snowboard, season pass). All proceeds go to support local ski and snowboard youth teams. Tickets are $5, and if you don’t buy one and go to the party, you’ll have to deal with my wrath. =)
Speaking of wrath, Mother Nature’s is out of the picture today, as high pressure builds over the northwest. Clouds will burn back towards Portland today, leaving us with upper teen westerlies from the Corridor out to Doug’s this afternoon.
Tomorrow morning brings more rain, but clouds will break up in the afternoon. High pressure fills the coastal airspace by evening, giving us gusty westerlies in the mid-twenties. Sunday brings light wind and clear skies.
Have a great day today!
