Welcome to the SUMMER of 2018.
This page serves to aggregate many sources of relevant weather data and information and is in constant development. We hope that the information here serves the outdoor sports community in helping make better decisions about their outdoor activities.
Although this page is geo-specific to Red and Granite Mountains near Rossland, BC, many of the tools apply to much of the Pacific North West.
