Cost for Forecasting Services
A set-up fee is charged to allow for research ahead of time of the specific mountain area, and to allow the meteorologist to spend a few days getting familiar with the current weather patterns. Forecast will be for the exact location and elevations needed.
Fee is then charged per forecast, which includes a full discussion of the current pattern and outlook for the extended time period. We will keep you informed about the timing of incoming or outgoing weather systems, and provide as much specific weather information as you need about temps, winds, precip, or whatever other weather variable is important to you. Basically, we are watching the weather for you, so you can concentrate on your climb, event, etc.
