The La Grande Weather Service, Inc. (LGDWS) is setting up a base of operation at La Grande Ride Headquarters. This local partnership will provide a La Grande area recreation-related weather forecast and data on current conditions. The new "LaGrandeRide.com Weather Forecast" will be an exclusive forecast presented at www.LaGrandeRide.com along with other planned weather features. Watch for this forecast to be active soon on the site.
Currently LGDWS is providing weather forecasting for Anthony Lakes Ski Area. Meteorologist in Charge Tesmond Hurd was instrumental in placing a new weather station on the ski patrol station near the top of the chairlift with the help of Wallowa Avalanche Center. This has filled a much needed void in weather information for skiers, snowboarders, and winter enthusiasts.
Weather information is very important to the mission of La Grande Ride to promote fitness, recreation, and sport performance. "Weather is a primary concern for recreation in La Grande," says Brian Sather of La Grande Ride. "Unfortunately, we're literally off the radar in La Grande and the computer automated forecasting services often gets our local weather wrong. LGDWS will give us a weatherman on the ground, to give us the information we need for being prepared when we all head out to play."
The La Grande Ride Hours of Operation calendar will indicate times and days LGDWS will be open for business at Headquarters on Albany Street in La Grande.

La Grande Ride is offering sales of MBS mountainboards, an awesome way to rip the terrain of Northeastern Oregon. These skate/snow board style rides gobble up rough terrain, yet are versatile enough to tackle the streets and skate parks. MBS also offers longboards and carve boards. La Grande Ride offers MBS mountainboards because of the good natural fit for the region. The trails featured at LaGrandeRide.com are perfect for mountainboarding and the locally popular activities of skateboarding, snowboarding, BMX, and downhill riding flow directly into the mountainboarding skillset.
La Grande Ride, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Ibis Cycles to their line of top quality bicycles offered in Northeast Oregon. Ibis currently manufactures cyclocross, mountain, and road bikes, featuring award winning designs and unique characteristics that distinguish them from the pack. Their latest addition is a 29er mountain bike frame to come out later in 2011.
Weather forecasting for La Grande, Oregon is now active at the Weather Center of LaGrandeRide.com. This local exclusive forecast is brought to us from the weather team at La Grande Weather Service, Inc. By providing human-powered weather information, we are able to benefit from the intelligence that only local attention can provide. Because of the unique weather patterns and infamous radar darkness (because of the mountains), a local forecast is important for the Grande Ronde Valley. La Grande Weather Service, Inc. has been working in conjunction with Anthony Lakes Ski Resort this year to resolve a similar problem, and offer local forecasting for the ski area.
Weather forecasts are important for recreation decisions. La Grande Ride, Inc. is pleased to offer these weather services. Future instruments and local weather technology are currently under development. Keep checking back for further news.
