I’m sorry you didn’t make it out. Company would have been nice. My experience is that XCSkies is a better predictor most of the time – Especially NAM3, and even more especially when all the models agree. (I usually ignore the global model except when the others don’t cover the time period I’m interested in. It’s almost always overly optimistic about altitude, wind direction, etc.)
I’ve been very busy lately, so I was motivated to take what I could get. I even told myself that if it blew down all day, I’d at least have a good eBike ride.
