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.

Bonus weekend of fun.............

And to think, just last weekend was Snofest with no snow and most thought it was done and over for the season.  Today riders are out enjoying a bonus weekend of fun and maybe another one next weekend.    Groomer are out and they are working the heck out of the main trails, getting them frozen down, so they'll hold up better to the weekend traffic.  By what I'm hearing, there are still some trails out there, that no one has been on yet and the town report is warning you about getting stuck.  We are into spring conditions, with the sun high in the sky.  But it looks like we'll be in the clouds tomorrow, so that will help keep things frozen down.

Don't do it alone............

Groomers are out, but they can only go so fast when working with this much snow.  So it's slow going and I'm hoping they'll have all the trails broken open for the weekend.  If they don't and you get a brain storm to try going down one, don't do it alone.  It's no fun digging a sled out by yourself.  I buried my sled in the front yard yesterday, trying to pack it down for parking.  I gave up on trying to get it out under it's own power and hooked the truck to it, came right out.
