Lost it again !

The power went out just before noon and it came back on around 7:30pm.  The only two cams that are online right now are the motel and Stillwater.  The rest won't be back online till the morning.  As I can't get into the buildings they are in till then.

As for the weather we had a mixed bag today.  Freezing R, sleet, snow and just plain old R at one point.  But none of it was in any great amount and we really didn't loose that much snow.  Check out the railing on the motel cam.  There is still some snow on it.  The temp has dropped back down below freezing at 8:15 and things should start to freeze back down.  So cross your fingers that we see some new snow in the next few days and we'll be back riding again by the weekend.

Wednesday Morning Update:   It's snowing at 9:00am and we have three inches of new snow on the ground.  No it's not allot, but it's enough to cover the ice from yesterday and make it rideable again.  Because yesterday there wasn't enough loose snow for cooling of the sled or the slides.  I'll have more for you later.

  5. Don't know if Joe is correct, but he seems to think it's going to get real cold in the next 10 days or so. By then, one could argue, it may be too late. Here is the link, click on the videos. He is entertaining to listen to. http://www.weatherbell.com/

    1. Where do you guys get all of you bogus info from? Try telling the truth. Weather shows a warming trend the next 10 days rising to 40 degrees Sunday and Monday with rain on monday. Best to just do your own research than come here.

  8. Temps look warm next week then longer term cold and snow...I'm thinking the best is yet to come in late February and early March...glad I got 500 miles in this season but I won't drive 5 hours for what I just rode on...it was good but not good enough to justify the trip...as Steve often says..."how bad do you wanna ride" ???
