Dude, that's not even enough to put the lift to the top on wind hold. Go out and ride. You won't regret it. White Pass is super fun, especially when it's deep.

I use this for back country avalanche forecasting primarily but it is extremely useful for getting a feel for what the actual conditions at the resort are. On Hood, many times the forecast calls for snow, but when I pull up the NWAC telemetry data, I discover its raining and stay home.

So, like Snowolf said, at the 10-30mph predicted, super fun day. At the 83mph they got, closed for the day. That's quite a swing in forecast there. I wouldn't tell anyone to go ride if I knew the wind would be 83mph. That would just be crazy.
