Old Forge, NY Trail Report 2-14-12

First thing I'd like to talk about is the Anonymous posts. I set this blog up so it would be easy for everyone to post and give their thoughts about the conditions, by using the Anonymous post settings. The next level of settings would require you to set up an account and then post, which would be a pain and I don't think as many people would take the time or effort to post. There's nothing wrong with having some fun, but please no attacks and remember not every ones eyes are old.

I saw the Highway Dept. hauling snow to North Street, my guess is they are starting to build the snow pile for the jumpers at SnoFest. The conditions overall are about the same. Trails are fair to good and the roads are toast. Everyone came back yesterday with a smile on their face and couldn't believe how good the trails are for the limited snow. Chris has some thoughts about the trail conditions and you can hear them in the video. But the end of his comment fades out for some reason. Must have something to do with the editing I did.


Here's Today's Video for.....

  3. Hey steve just letting you know all of us here on long island go to your site every day to see whats going on in old forge..you are dead on with your reports everytime. We were up two weeks ago and went to indian lake ..it was a little icy but overall it was some great riding.. been up three or four times this year already and put 200 miles or better each time with no damage to our sleds..Keep up the reports because if it was not for you.. most of us from the island would prbly not make the trip up...God bless you and your family...Tommy
