dont forget to remind people it costs $11 for a day ticket and $33 for a season ticket to do anything "recreational" on the dunes like kiteboarding or hang-gliding (sledding and snowboarding you don't need a ticket for).

The parking lot looks pretty dry, I think there might be some snow on the west side of the dunes but there was no wind today.
