Spring time conditions...............

With the warmer weather today and it looks like more of it this week.  I'd say that spring time conditions will be back with us very soon.  So I wouldn't wait to long to get that last ride in.

  2. Well, was up last thursday and friday and I was glad to get in one more ride...all inner trails were phenomenal! Trail 5 was lousy, but otherwise, can't complain...the lakes were good to take to get around that. I did a little riding on the tracks too and they were fantastic as well!! The plows beat up uncas, and really are a huge pain to all snowmobilers, but whatever...it was a solid year, here is to an even better year next year! Thanks Steve for your site!

  3. They've been plowing Uncas almost 6 miles down. It really
    Is not worth driving that way anymore. Wish they'd leave
    A little on the edge for us. It had to hurt the business at
    The boat and the tap room.

    1. You can't fight stupidity. Why would you leave a little snow on the side of the road when your the"SNOWMOBILE CAPITAL OF THE NORTHEAST".......

  4. Rode today to norregewock tracks were in great shape, but tracks were starting to show. IMHO with the warmth coming they will show even more. Inner trails still almost perfect. Going to tty confusion flats tomorrow. As Steve says, probably wont be stripped steak on Thursday

  5. A 45" strip of snow on the side of the road would be marvelous. Don't think it is too much to ask for.

  6. I cant believe all the businesses and restaurants closed.... the trail passes and trails system are open till April 1. Why wouldnt they stay open till then. Or the ones that are open have a very limited menu.

  8. There is a lot involved in keeping a restaraunt open with the purpose of hoping it snows and hoping people will come up... years of poor march weather dug into the pockets of many adirondack eateries. I was not surprised to see so many closed and wasnt mad either... happy i rode 450 miles over the weekend and wont complain about the slice of pizza i had at the nice n easy.... lookin forward to next year.

  9. Just got back from Old Forge today. Excellent riding from Saturday through last night. Groomers were out all over the place and the trails were really good. They were starting to show a little wear in places by late yesterday. We rode to Brantingham and had a great, I do mean great, meal at the Coach Light restaurant. Breakfast was really good at Walt's every day. And it wouldn't be a trip up if we didn't visit Hard Times Cafe. The businesses that were open really worked to feed all the riders that were in town. Thanks to the people who work hard to make Old Forge, Inlet, and the surrounding areas a fun place to ride. And thank you, Steve, for the web cams and the work you do on this site so we know what is happening in Old Forge and on the trails. Hope next year brings another good riding season!

  15. Inner trails are good, really rough to get into them, i come into town from petes peak/4a and it barely rideable, once over the bridge on north street its fair/snirt. Past 3 it get better.
    Lakes are slush, we just rode to inlet and back for dinner.
    Im headed home sat morning, dont think it will last long once the sun comes out tomorrow.

  24. Hello Steve,

    Thanks for your annual, seasonal cam. Your service to the area and the visitors is amazing! It was nice to hear your comment about "Mr.Christy" about a month or so ago. I remember him when I was just a kid living in town. He was always busy, seemed to smile alot and always had a pile of stuff in the back of his truck. Keep up the good work!
