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.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

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.
