We dodged the bullet last night and the R stayed north of us. So all we had to deal with was warm temps over the last few days. Things have gotten soft from the temps, but the melting has been limited.

Well it's a lot warmer than I was hoping. You'll see in the parking lot video from this morning, that things looked pretty good. But at 6pm we're at 39 and after looking at the radar loop we may see some R later on tonight. Cross your fingers that it falls apart before it gets here. As we really don't need to see any R, as things have already gotten soft from today's temps. There's a hand full of people out riding. But I would guess they are trail locked, as the roads are falling apart with these temps. What a difference it makes, how conditions hold together much longer at the end of the season after months of cold. Compared to now, with things getting soft after just a day of high 30's.

Just think how great it would be, if the season keeps going, the way it has started out. With cold temps, snow in the air and warm ups that only last a day or so. There's a good amount of people in town for SnoDeo and they are enjoying the trail conditions we have this year. After watching the trail cam over the weekend. I'm putting my money on the base having a great start for the season.

Yesterday morning things had already started to firm up and with the teen temps yesterday things are firming up fast. All we need now is to get the snow that is in the forecast. As you can see road riding is out until we see some more snow. Also the snow stick out front is showing just under a foot.

I got a phone call this morning and I think my answer shocked him. He wanted to know if I had rooms open for tonight, as he wanted to come riding, since the trails open today. I said yes I have rooms open, but truthfully I wish you would stay home. It was 43 yesterday and we had R. It is still above freezing now and the driveway out front is a swamp. The groomers have the trails flat as a board, but they are very soft, with many wet spots after the weather we just had. All you will do is tear them up and the groomers can't go out and fix them as it is to soft. So we all will have to deal with a frozen in mess the rest of the winter. Please give it a few days of cold weather so things can freeze back down. Would I have liked to take his $$? Sure but sometimes you have to look at the big picture. The big picture being we have everything in place to have the best base we have seen in many years. A base that will get us through warm ups later on and back out riding much faster. But you have to give it a little time to set up.
