What La Nina Means for Snowfall

What La Nina Means for Snowfall

Colder than normal water temperatures in the Pacific make 2010-2011 a La Nina winter. This is good news for many skiers looking for deep snow.

“Why do we care about La Nina, or El Nino?” In short, it’s really the only reliable clue that meteorologists have to predict temperature and precipitation patterns months and seasons in advance. Meteorologist/skier Joel Gratz weighs in.
 “Hey La Nina, what’s in it for me?”  When geek-speak goes mainstream, you know the nerds must have a hot topic on their hands. You might think that I’m talking about The Facebook Movie (“The Social Network”), where geeks write computer code over shots of Tequila. But not quite.

Hood to Coast
A new film looks inside the minds of the people who take on this weekend’s Hood to Coast relay.

This weekend is the running of the 29th annual Hood to Coast relay. The course runs from Timberline Lodge, 6,000 feet high on the top of Mt. Hood, through Portland, to the beach in Seaside, Oregon.

Timberline Lodge Proposes Mountain Bike Lift Service for 2011

Timberline Lodge Proposes Mountain Bike Lift Service for 2011

A new system of downhill mountain bike trails would provide year-round recreation. But what are the environmental impacts?

Timberline Lodge and Ski Area has proposed a plan to construct 15 miles of lift-serviced mountain biking trails and an acre-sized skills park. Until now, bikers eager for some downhill action have been creating their own trails. These illegally constructed routes are said to be damaging Oregon’s public lands. The new network of trails will be designed to meet the growing demand for year round recreation on the hill. Although nearby Portland has more people with bikes per capita than any other state, there are few lift-accessed mountain biking areas.

Center of fun.

The Sun Mountain Fun Center has almost too much fun for one center. There’s bowling, an arcade, pool, go-karts, mini golf, batting cages, and bumper cars. You can recharge at Sunny’s Café. The Family Funtastic Pack, offered Monday through Friday, is $60 for a pitcher of soda, a large two-topping pizza, and four junior passports (which are good for one game of bowling, one game of mini golf, one bumper car ride, one batting cage token, and a $2 arcade card). Other specials continue throughout the summer.
