Gorge Wind Forecast

There’s not much to talk about in the wind for the next few days, which allows this wind forecaster to take the day off on Monday. Yay! For Sunday, we’ll have east wind at 10-15 from Rooster Rock to Viento for a few hours in the morning. Easterlies fade in the afternoon. Calm conditions replace the whitecaps, allowing you and your beginner friends to standup paddle all over the place.

Monday’s wind starts out as “no-wind”. It appears the placement of the heat low and the high pressure will allow for some light westerlies in the afternoon: 7-11mph from Cascade Locks to Mosier after 1pm or so. Tuesday starts with E 10-15 from Rooster to Viento. The wind builds to 15-20 midday in the those locations and picks up to E 5 from Hood River eastward. Afternoon easterlies fade to 5-10 from Rooster to Viento. Wednesday looks like a repeat of Tuesday. Thrusday and Friday bring very strong westerlies from Swell to Doug’s, possibly farther east and west too.

COAST, SAUVIE’S, JONES: Coast (north/central/south, wind N unless otherwise specified). Sunday: 20-25/25-30/30-35+, W swell 2′ at 9 seconds. Monday: 25-30/30-35/35-40, W 4′ @ 10. Tuesday: 25-30/20-25/nope, W 4′ @ 11. Sauvie’s Sunday: 10-13 late. Monday: 21-24! Tuesday: 12-15. Jones Sunday: 5-8. Monday: nope. Tuesday: nothin’.

Road and Mountain Biking

Post was the mostest yesterday with epic brown pow. Knebal, 8-Mile, Bottle Prairie and Surveyor’s are open. Logging has begun on Whoopdee, so the main loop is closed. Ronnoc trail will remain open, and so will the climb out. Other open trails: Post, Nestor, Columbia Hills, Hospital Hill, Dog River, Sandy Ridge, Syncline, and Falls Creek from the top. Lower Lewis River is open. Despite advice to the contrary, Red Hill Road was open to bikes on Saturday, 6/1. Proof is on The Strava. Red Hill Road is supposedly closed for logging. Ride at your own risk.

If you’re riding Underwood, please do not park at the trailhead any more as per request by SDS. Continue past the trailhead 0.5 miles or so to the new designated parking area. The cows are out on Hospital Hill, which happens to be private land owned by the Kreps family. Do not take your dog or you 1) endanger the life of your dog and 2) endanger access to the land for everyone.
