Wind readings?

Can anyine direct me to a site that has wind speed readings? THe resorts don't brag about wind speeds for obvious financial reasons, but I would like to be able to find out how windy it is before dragging the family out to be blown off the mountain. My 4 year old doesn't mind but his aunts and grandparents tend to whine about it, although they are smart enough not do do so in front of the kid.

Hey Dave,

Q - Did you hear about the day the wind stopped blowing at Eldora?

A - Everyone fell down

Thouth we know that some areas tend to be windier than others, you've raised a good question - I'll be interested in what you find out.

I suspect its likely that some areas are just typically windier than others (Breck, Eldora, A-Basin) and that you'll have to find the ones that are just less wind-prone.

Hope all's well with you & the family,

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

You might try here:
Surface obersvations

Or, the NWS forecast wind speeds in their gridded products accessible by clicking on the location of interest on their "Detailed Point Forecast Map"

Or, the graphical forecast from the Boulder WFO and select maximum windspeed
