Okay so we all went kiting two weeks ago in 70 degree weather, but now I am going snowboarding tomorrow because the mountain is reopening? I woke up this morning and forgot whether it was spring or fall! What a weird year. Neutral

Yeah, Dax likes to complain about how crappy the Gorge is... But notice that he also seems to stick around here as well...

Sorry Dax, gotta poke a little fun at you. You have obviously not been skunked on any of your vacations yet. I had over three weeks in Puerto Rico with nothing, and I mean nothing. I have also been to Hatteras for a 12 day stretch and come home with just a big hang over and sore muscles from surfing at the Buxton Lighthouse everyday. Even have sat on the beach in Maui for extended periods and just enjoyed lighting up the local herbs...

Bam... out!

Maybe I just like to complain? Wink

I haven't gotten totally skunked on a trip yet... but my last trip to SPI I only got 2 sessions in 7 days, and man does that place suck when you can't go kiting!

The Gorge is sweetness, I am just not from the NW so the instability of the weather always facinates me. (How can this winter/spring not make you scratch your head?!)

Portland / Gorge rocks, you really can't find anywhere that has it all like we do.

I feel ya about the weather. The mountain has hardly been ridable all year and now that itís the end of the season for snowboarding/skiing, the snow is a fallen! I sure hope that the wind isnít this inconsistent this season.

No doubt! I'd be pretty bummed if I was only a powder hound however I canít complain as we've have had quite a rather windy winter given the benign nature of this yearís Ďwinterí.
