5/13 Forecast

Good morning!

You know what? Sleeping in is something special when you only get to do it on a no-wind, no-new-snow day. I slept 10 hours last night, and it felt great.

If you’re headed to Timberline today, you’re probably already gone, but it’s going to be warm and sunny, so wax warm. If you’re missing Meadows, they reopen Saturday and Sunday for bikini skiing on the last two days of the their season!

Today’s wind forecast won’t make windsurfers and kiters happy, but if you’re a fisherman, a standup paddler, or if you just want to leave the house without using an entire can of aqua-net on your hair, today is for you. No wind. Same goes for tomorrow: no wind. At this point, it’s not looking like we’ll see much wind this weekend, so the next few days are looking like road biking paradise!

If you’re a mountain biker and you haven’t ridden Post this week, you must go. It’s perfect, and that means the Post and Pint ride is on for tonight. Meet at Dirty Fingers at 5:30, take a lap around Post Canyon, and claim your reward at the shop afterwards. Also tonight is a very cool movie: Follow me, a hi-def mountain bike film at Andrew’s on the big screen. Showtimes are 6 and 7:30pm.

Coming up this Saturday is something totally different: It’s the annual open house at The Dalles Rifle and Pistol Club on Saturday. If I weren’t working at the mountain, I’d be there, but since I can’t go, you should. There’s free ammo, free hot dogs, free diet coke and cool people including my friend Phil. Go check it out!

Have a great day!
