Thank you for using this forecast! Your donations keep this forecast going – despite rumors to the contrary, nobody pays me to write this and post it. This forecast started as a way for me to find better windsurfing conditions. It morphed into a way for me to find better skiing in the winter. Seemed silly to keep that information to myself, so it’s here for you (almost) every day. Make a $12 or larger donation, and you’re on the email list for a year. No dealing with the twice-yearly pledge drive. Sometimes I even have prizes to give away from the email list sponsors. Thank you again for your support! Enjoy the snow and wind and sun!

Good morning,

Let me tell you what was fun last night: Skibowl. Yep, little Mini-Crystal. Little mini-vacation for little Miss T. The Upper Bowl was great. No Outback, but that’s okay, because it was powderliciousness of untracked happiness. When the snow level is around 1000′, and everyone else has given up on night skiing, the Bowl will deliver for you. And the $12.95 mountain of nachos is a very, very happy thing.

Sigh. You really should go skiing today, wherever you go. It doesn’t matter, because it’s going to be good everywhere.
