Anyone home?

With the amount of sleds I saw across the street getting gas and on the webcams today.  It does make me wonder if anyone was left at home today.  So for those of you that couldn't make it to the north country for some riding.  I made this video a little longer so you could at least feel like you where in on the holiday weekend.

Not much............

Not much to report today.  Riding is good, saw some new snow this morning and everyone is having a great time riding.  It's going to be a crazy weekend, so take your time and ride safe.

You can tell..........

When you have guests coming into the office late afternoon, you can almost guess how the trails are.  But when you don't see them at all, you just know the riding has to be great.  Well that's how it's been the last few days.  I see everyone in the morning getting ready.  But after that I don't see them till the next morning.

By the calls.............

I'm guessing we're going to see even more people than we did last weekend, by the number of calls I have gotten looking for rooms.  Forecast is looking good and the cold temps will be a huge help in keeping the trail conditions better longer.  Please remember it's a holiday weekend and there will be a lot of families and young riders out enjoying the sport.  So stay right and keep the speed under control.  Take my word on this.  It only takes a split second to get out of control and the out come can get ugly even faster.

Back On.............

Reset the last of the cams today.  Riding conditions are good and things are starting to firm up some. The groomers are out working the new snow and getting thing back into shape after a crazy weekend.

More coming..........

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON EST
MONDAY...

* WHAT...Snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 6
inches, with locally up to 8 inches across the western
Adirondacks.

At midnight is has started, so we'll have to see what we have in the morning.  I'm headed to the mountain in hopes of getting the trail and top cam back online.  For some reason I'm not able to connect to the top system after the voltage spikes and flickers we had few days ago.

Just got back from the mountain.  I'm sorry to say, Dave the groomer wasn't doing his thing, so I wasn't able to get a ride to the top.  I'll get it back online ASAP.

Still out..............

For those of you wondering why some of the webcams are off line.  Frontier is has a problem with the internet connection and they are working on repairing it.  It also means that the phones are down also.  So if you have been trying to call the area and can't get through, that is why.

We got it now.............

Snow stick started out at the one foot mark in the morning and is at the two foot mark now.  What else needs to be said.

Saturday morning update:  I knew there was something else I wanted to post and forgot.  Guess that's what happens when you post in the wee hours of the morning.  Most of the cams are down, because of a problem with Frontier's phone lines.

All depends..........

Here in Old Forge, we saw just a freezing drizzle today.  But some areas did have some passing R and some of the guests got caught in it.  Others lucked out and only saw the drizzle.  It didn't hurt the new snow we got overnight and it will be freezing down over the next few days with the temps that are headed our way.

Cross your fingers.................

With as many years as I have watched storms come and go, I can tell you this for sure.  It's doesn't mean anything till it's on the ground and keep your fingers crossed we stay on the good/snowy side of this storm.  With the temps I'm seeing it should be a good snow that will pack down very nice.

Update:  It's 1am and the snow has started.
Update:  7:30am this morning (Thur)  We woke up to 4 to 6  inches of new white stuff.

Did it again........

Went out riding last night and started to do the report when we got back.  Well the next thing I knew was I had a stiff neck and it was time for bed.  So here's Tuesday's video on Wednesday morning.  I'll have today's later on.

Not perfect...........

Conditions aren't perfect, but it sure is rideable.  More than one person has said the same thing, it's better than what I have at home, nothing.  It's been cloudy the last few days and we have seen a heavy dusting the last two mornings, which has helped out some.  Not much else to report as the weather has been quiet.

Got a little.........

First thing this morning it was on the warm side, high 20's.  But around noon it started to drop and we are back into the teens now.  With the traffic we have in town this weekend, the colder, the better to hold things together.  Radar is showing some snow off to our west and it's headed our way.  So cross your fingers we see a few inches overnight.
