Not one break !

I don't know what it is about this winter, but we sure can't get a break, not a one.  I said the other day that 1998 was a bad February also.  So today when I was at the info center, I looked at the snow total for that month and year.  I was shocked when I saw it, we had a whopping 8".  I'm not sure what the total is for this year, but it can't be much more.  February of 1982 had a total of 8" also.  So unless we get a surprise shot of snow.  It looks like another weekend of no riding again.

Today's Video............





Not showing up on the radar but it's snowing at 9:30pm.....

  2. Steve, do i need a permit to ice skate the trails? Crazy season for us all. Since we never got up this winter we are thinking of coming up for a weekend this summer. If its not snowing of course.

    1. To funny you say that. Because there are some places you could almost ice skate and no you wouldn't need a permit.

  4. Mother nature hated NY state this year. Can not believe the way this winter has been. Well maybe next year will be better for the snow enthusiasts. Lots of dealers with left over 2015 sleds I know who's going shopping. Me...

  7. You know its bad when the Team DD gang stops riding. Just a bonafide reminder that folks south of Syracuse/Utica are still waiting for their first snow storm of the season. Soon the clubs will begin picking up all their signage, having never rode once all season. Despicable to say the least.

  9. I'm starting to wonder how old the people are that are still whining about the lack of snow? Face the fact that this winter sucked for snow and get over it!

  10. This may not be the place to post this, but I don't think it matters because there is no riding at all of the east.
    My son and I went up to St. Zenon in Canada from Sunday through Tuesday. If you want to ride, and don't mind the extra hours of driving to get there, I highly recommend it. They have between 3 and 6 feet of snow, every storm that tracked west of us, hit them hard. They got 18 inches while we were there, which add to the 3 to 6 feet. The trails are amazing, 250 miles a day is no problem, the people are friendly, lots of food and gas stops, very similar to the O.F. area in that regard. Gas is expensive, the trail pass is a bit expensive, but worth it for the amount and quality of the trails. Security is not an issue anymore as most of the hotels have locked places for the rigs as well as the sleds, a must imo. If we had snow in our country, I don't think I would travel the extra distance more than once per season, but this is an exceptional year. I highly recommend checking it out, do your research and take a road trip. Be sure to have your passports, and exchange American money for Canadian because some of the gas stops don't take credit cards. We went to St.Zenon, but you don't have to go that far north to find excellent riding. St Donat, or Agathe may be good choices as well. Food for thought. Enjoy if you go, I know you will.

    4. We stayed at the Cabanon http://www.aubergelecabanon.com/. Nice place, not super fancy. Nice people, speak english, good trail knowledge, very good restaurant. Note: the trails around there were a bit rough because one of the groomers was down. We found the best trails around St. Donat and the trails between Le Cabanon and Donat. I would call them and find out if both groomers are up and running before I would stay there. There are a lot of choices.

    5. Bear in mind, barring a huge warm spell with a lot of rain, the trails will probably hold up well into April. I am planing of heading back there end of March or first week of April. Who know, maybe ride in shorts and a tee shirt. lol.

  11. Yes we did the same went just North of Mont Tremblant found wonderful snow. Though mind you it was a couple of weeks ago but was worth every penny......Will go back next year even if we have a good/great season at home.
