Hailing from a very windy mountain (as several divas can now attest, post-"diva summit!"), 20 mph isn't bad (kinda norm at summit for us here). Definitely consider the wind chill factor and go prepared with appropriate face covering, etc., even if you don't think you'll need it. You might.
Skiing in windy conditions can be very disorienting, especially in a ground blizzard.
Windy is a sustained wind speed from 20-30 mph. What makes a very windy day? Sustained winds between 30-40 mph. Try 40-73 mph sustained.
Generally, when winds start blowing close to 40 mile per hour, resort management will seriously consider closing down lifts and gondolas.
Wind Speeds: Anything over 35 mph will generally trip the safety devices on a lift and cause it to shut down. However, it depends upon which direction the wind is blowing. You could have a 45 mph wind from the south blowing on a lift and not cause that lift to close.
Lifts and terrain will not open if mountain operations or ski patrol believes it is unsafe. Avalanche danger, high winds, and mechanical issues can all shut down runs, lifts, or even the mountain.
Yes. That's why many ski areas shut down their gondolas and lifts when sustained winds clock 40mph. “Beyond 80mph, people can get blown down and away, the 115mph wind gust at Breckenridge would've sent most people tumbling down the mountain.”
Is Vampire Diaries worth watching? Definitely try it once. You get different plot in every season and there are small twists in every episode. If you like supernatural drama, you'll love this series.
It's a good idea to wear headphones in a video interview. Headphones will allow for more clear and concise communication to take place. While your laptop microphone and speakers may work, you can avoid mishearing and feedback issues using headphones.
Capitalization: The Days of the Week, the Months of the Year, and Holidays (But Not the Seasons Used Generally) Days, months, and holidays are always capitalized as these are proper nouns.
