One Day.............

Well it looks like today is going to be a warm one and then it's back to winter temps and weather.  I'm hoping this will start getting some frost in the ground and setting things up for the snow to stick that much faster when it gets here.  There's a problem with the internet connection at the top of McCauley and I'm working on getting it fixed.  So until then, the cams on top and the trail cam will be on and off.

Four Weeks...............

Only four weeks till the trails open for the 2017-2018 season.  We had a warm fall season and that brought more people to the area than normal.  Which helped make up for the very wet cool summer that we had this year.  So what's it going to be like this year?  Your guess is good as any ones.  I have seen a few bands of lake effect on radar already, but nothing that made it to the ground.  Ten day forecast is showing night time lows in the teens a few nights.  So winter is just around the corner.  Don't forget Nov. 15th is the cut off for pre season permits.

Last one of the season.............

At this point, even I have given up hope on getting in that last ride.  There is a chance of snow on Friday, but with the way things have been melting down, we would need a good dump to get enough snow cover to ride again.  So now it's time to change hats and start working on getting things spruced up for the summer season. Thanks for watching this season and hope you had a good one.

Seven, Two, None

The last of my diehard riders, packed it in this morning and headed for home.  So Tuesday I had seven rooms of sledders, Wednesday two and today I'm down to none.   They said it's getting thin and with the sun baking things off day after day, it was time to pack it in.  After last weeks snow, we would of been set till the closing of the gates, if it would of stayed cold, like it has been the last few days.  So it looks like it's over, but nothing is for sure, till they swing them shut.

Presidents week all over..............

It's hard to believe, that not even a week ago we got almost three feet of fresh snow and today it's almost all gone.  It's a replay of Presidents week all over again, but this time there's no hope of coming back from it and getting in another ride for the season.  I do have a few diehards in, giving it the old college try, but I don't think even they'll be around much longer, at the rate the sun is doing a number on things.

It may look pretty..........

We haven't seen overcast skies in a few days and it may look pretty, but the sun hasn't been doing us any favors.  Night time lows have been freezing things back down, but you can only have so many days of this before things start going down high fast.  Either way, it looks like the end will be coming again, by the end of the week.  So if you have any thoughts of getting in that last ride, do it soon.  It isn't great, but you can still get in some seat time.

Roads are toast...............

The March sun is doing it's thing and the roads are toast from it.  But the trails are holding so far.  They did get soft this afternoon as the temp went up into the high 30's.  But the night time lows have been freezing them back down.  Even with the roads being toast, everyone is enjoying there trip north.  Looks like the weather is going to be a day by day watch this week.
