Hmmm, fantasy call for today's event coming up...Let's see: the wind is directly on one of our slopes, but arriving in industrial scale quantities, with an epic wind-chill factor. As these things are supposed to be enjoyable, I'm calling it OFF!
The next scheduled non-event is April 12th.

Meanwhile here's is a reminder of a scale fly-in back in 2009. The wind was non-existent initially, but picked up a bit later. Not a perfect day, but it looks pretty damn good from where we are at the moment...!
