Here's a first.........

Someone missed the bridge at the end of North Street and put their sled in the river.  One good thing about doing it there.  They won't have to worry about it freezing over and not being able to get to it.

Trail Closed

 I just got a phone call from the trail foreman about the cut off trail between trail 1 and the Brantingham trail. It is being closed by the DEC today.  My understanding for the closure is as follows.  There is a one mile section that was being shared by the logging company and snowmobilers.  This morning there was two incidents between logging trucks and snowmobiles.  More than that I don't know.  My guess would be like the old saying.  A few wrecked it for all.

Christmas replay..............

 Not a lot, but enough to turn things around, that there will be riding this weekend.  The cold temps on Thursday night will freeze things down and help the groomers do their thing.  The video pretty much tells it all.  What's incorrect in the video?

Not yet............

 I'd give it 2 to 3 inches since it started snowing this morning.  We have to 7pm Thursday to get to the 5 to 9 they are predicting.  But wait, I just looked at the warning again and at 9:38pm they dropped it to 1 to 3 additional.  Well isn't that just special.  There is one good thing, it is good packing snow.

Why can't it?

 Why do the snow totals always become less as the day gets closer.  Wouldn't it be nice for once that they increased.

Winter Storm Watch

 WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH

THURSDAY EVENING...

* WHAT...Heavy mixed precipitation possible. Total snow
accumulations of 6 to 12 inches and ice accumulations of around
one tenth of an inch possible. Winds could gust as high as 35
mph.

* WHERE...The southern Adirondacks and Glens Falls Saratoga Region
of eastern New York and all of southern Vermont.

Could it be?

 Down to one day from what could be the game changer for the riding conditions.  We've seen it many times before, the long range forecast is calling for good snow and as it gets closer it goes away.  The local forecast is looking even better than what we're seeing on the internet.  Cross your fingers and check the oil.  It looks like it's finally going to be time to go riding.
