General Comments
Mother Nature's prepared a smorgasborg of weather for us today, which means you'll want a matching menu of clothing, wax, and eyeware. First, our appetizer: the days starts with drizzle and freezing drizzle. Pair that with a fine layer of Gore-Tex. Next up, the main course, served around the time lifts open. Carefully prepared by the chefs of the Pacific Ocean, that meal includes sunshine, blue sky, temps a couple marks above freezing. If the forecast holds, that delicious sustenance will be available for most of the day. Pairing: sunglasses and sunscreen. Desert today arrives around sunset in the form of high clouds. If the timing works out just right, you'll be treated to the sensory overload of a blazing sunset. Match that with your camera. Tickets to this feast: $99. Need a ride up today? We run a free shuttle from Hood River every day. We'll see you soon!
