QFT

Wind and Snow is what fancy gear is for and pussies to stay home. I run hotter n fuck tho, I'd ride in about 14f all the time if I had my druthers.

and FWIW, if you are paying a chunk of change for a WP ticket, they OFTEN close the top lift (Panoramic Express, which takes you to the big wide bowl above treeline) due to wind there, so if that is important to your dollar value, it's worth considering. Most of the mountain stays open just not that lift on windy days.
