Good morning gorge sports fanatics!

The ski report this morning calls for a sunny day on Mt. Hood. It’s 36 degrees at Timberline, where there’s a 160 inch base, 33 at Meadows, where there’s a 125 inch base, and 42 at Skibowl, where’s it’s free to ski today for Customer Appreciation day. Wherever you’re headed, throw some warm wax on your skis and prepare to finish early, because it’s going to be fun in the morning and sticky by afternoon.

If you’re a road biker, check out the Cherry of a Ride in The Dalles today. All proceeds go to benefit St. Mary’s Academy, so go ride your bike on a fully supported tour for a good cause.

Thanks to everyone who showed up for Charley’s work party at Post yesterday. I wish I could have joined you guys, but I’m at Meadows all day on the weekends. Anyway, Post is in prime-time near-perfect riding condition now, so go break in Charley’s trail and the newest section on spaghetti factory, and if you happen to have a new bike, break that in too! Just don’t break yourself!

Windsurfers and kiters and everyone else can head to the Windance multi-sport swap meet this morning, but there won’t be wind today. A weak front late tomorrow may bring some westerlies just before sunset, maybe upper teens, but the strongest wind will blow overnight. Tuesday’s looking like a decent west wind day on the water, with low pressure in the desert and high pressure building off the coast. Plan on Tuesday afternoon. Don’t tire yourself out Tuesday, because Wednesday looks like a massive, nuclear-force day in the Corridor. I’m kinda getting excited…

Finally, boaters, the Hood’s at 4.3 feet, the White Salmon’s at 3.9 feet, and the Little Whtie’s at 701cfs

Have an awesome day!
