Good morning!

Mountain Weather Forecast
It’s sunny, the winds are calm, and it’s going to hit 32-35 degrees at 5000’ today.

Tomorrow will be sunny with light wind and the 5000’ temp hitting 47-50 degrees. Tomorrow is customer appreciation day at Skibowl with free lift tickets. Nachos are not free.

Monday looks partly cloudy, becoming cloudy later, with a chance of snow overnight with winds SW at 25-30mph, rising to 30-40 by midday.

Gorge Wind Forecast
Today’s going to be windy. The low clouds are just past Hood River, which means the steadiest wind will be from Mosier eastward. Look for 18-22 this morning picking up to 24-28 this afternoon from Mosier to The Wall. The wind will fill back to Stevenson and Hood River, but will be a little gusty in the 18-21 range all day.

Tomorrow looks light, with a little bit of east wind. Monday morning looks light, but as a front approaches in the morning, westerlies pick up to 17-20 from Stevenson to Mosier, quickly shifting out east, where it will be gustier, building to the 25-29 range. Best quality will be at Arlington or Avery.

Other stuff
The Banff Mountain Film Festival plays at Andrew’s today and tomorrow. Today and tomorrow also brings the Bear Spring Trap mountain bike race. Tomorrow you can score free acupuncture at Gorge Community Acupuncture. Monday is Meadows Employee ski day. If you are thinking of skinning, you’ll have to stay out of the resort until they are closed for the season, as the no uphill traffic policy still applies.

Have an awesome day today!
