Better than...............

And to think just a week ago the high was 50, with a low of 35 and R coming from the sky.  And today everything is back to normal, with light snow in the air and sleds everywhere.  Doesn't look like we'll see much sun over the next few days, which will help keep the roads frozen down.

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

A Reminder...........

I posted this many years ago, on how to get around town using the trails that are next to the roads in town.  The only thing that has changed is behind the school, which you no longer have to drop down onto the road to get around the parking lot.  The road info starts at the 45 second mark in the video.

Hope it helps with any questions you have..............

Back Open..............

Trail 1 is back open, but the deer yard loop is stilled closed due to flooding.

Free Weekend Update  I made a call to the powers to be and yes D Trump.   OF officials will be looking for in state border crossers and they will be giving out paper work with the address to send the check.

It's back............

The trail cam is back online, but you aren't going to see much action with trail 1 being closed at North Street.  Trails 1 is frozen down solid and looks really sweet.  Guess that's what happens when you have R and then the temp drops to below zero.   I saw a few people on it, checking out the once flooded area.  Almost forgot....we had snow in the air most of the day and we picked up an inch or two.  Looks like more tonight also.

Sunny and Cold............

Here's Monday's video.  Not much of anything went on during the day, besides it was sunny and stayed cold.  Today, Tuesday we do have light snow in the air.  I'll have more later on.

REGISTRATION-FREE WEEKEND

Here's the scoop on this years free weekend.  Please note the last four words in the release.  It's my understanding that the free weekend is for out of state riders only and NYS riders WILL need a trail permit to be on the TOW trails.  So to all the permit holders out there...your comments didn't fall on deaf ears.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has designated the weekend of February 2nd – 5th as a free snowmobiling weekend for all out-of-state and Canadian snowmobilers. New York State registration fees will be waived for properly registered and insured out-of-state snowmobiling enthusiasts.

The Town of Webb officials have announced participation in Governor Cuomo’s program, and will not require trail permits February 2nd (8AM) through February 5th (midnight) for any properly registered and insured out-of-state snowmobiles.

Forgot to include..........

When getting the video from Stillwater, I saw more than one group heading on and off of the reservoir. Is it safe?  I can't say for sure.  But the more people that pack it down, the thicker the ice will get.  I was planning on checking out to the trail cam tonight and getting it back online.  But with the trail flooded, that will be on hold till the water goes down.

Trail Cam...............

Ken checked out the trail cam for me and he said there wasn't any snow on the wireless bridge.  So I started looking at the other end of the bridge and with the amount of ice that is on the PTZ cam encloser.  I'm guessing the problem is on top of the mountain.

Quik Update

We got half a foot or more of good heavy snow so far and there is still snow coming down. Trail cam is down and I'm guessing there is too much snow on the wireless bridge for it to work.  The groomers are back out doing there thing and with temps as low as they are trails should freeze back up fast.

Just off to the west........

The snow is coming and it's just off to our west.  By the way the radar looks, we'll be seeing a good shot of snow over night.  The R from last night took a toll on the snow, but the ice base seems to have held up pretty good.  So if we get the foot plus they are calling for, we'll be riding again soon.

So far so good...............

We got warm today, but we haven't seen any R as of yet.  So let's hope for the cold front to get here sooner than planned and we see more snow than R.  So for now, it's all just a waiting game to see how it all plays out.

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

I'll keep you updated................

If we get all the R they are talking about, things could get ugly for the entire region.  But don't give up the ship just yet.  It won't be the first time we dodged the bullet and came out on the good side of the storm.  Time will tell and cross your fingers it turns out for the best.

Better late than never.............

Sorry about no post yesterday.  By the time I got a few second free to work on it, the day was over.  So I figured I'd just do it in the morning.  So here it is.

Got snow and more coming..............

We had light snow on Sunday night and this morning we have storm snow in the air.  Looks like we can get 3 plus before it's over.  Still calling for some R on Thursday, but I noticed that the word "chance" is now in front of the R word.  So let's hope that it doesn't happen and all we have to deal with is the warms temps for a day.  By Friday night it looks like we'll be right back into winter mode and frozen stuff coming out of the sky on Saturday.  Yesterday the high mileage riders for the day did 170 miles.  They headed over past the wind mills.

Not one complaint...........

Trails are groomed to prefection and only a hand full of riders are here enjoying them.  The guests I talked with today had no complaints and said they just took a few more warm up pit stops.  But starting Sunday I think we're going to see much more traffic in the area.  As many will be heading to town for the great conditions after the deep freeze and before the possible warm up.

Now you're talking old school conditions..........

Our high today was 2 below and traffic has been light.  Trails don't get any better than they are right now and the few that are here are going to have a weekend that they'll remember for years to come.  Yes, it's going to be a little chilly and you'll have to make a few more pit stops to warm up.  But the riding is going to be a blast and there won't be any wait to get a seat to eat.

Time will tell...............

On New Years Eve there was a full moon, not a cloud in the sky and the temp was well below zero by 9pm.  So I knew it was going to be a cold one and it sure was, we dropped to 33 below in the morning.  There's a lot of talk about the temps for this weekend.  But they also are showing cloud cover and most times that helps to keep the temps warmer.  I'm guessing the good trails conditions, that you get with cold temps will make it worth having to deal with the cold.  So it'll be interesting to see how it all turns out by the end of the weekend.

Something a little different....

Now I knows what a news person feels like when there really isn't much to report.  Conditions are the best they have been in years and forecast is full of cold temps and snow.  So what more can you ask for, besides it to continue all the way till the end of the season.  There has been some light snow in the air this morning and if it snows like this all day we'll see 2 to 4 inches by the end of the day.  Today's video is something a little different.  Hope you enjoy it.
