No reason............

 In the last 24 hours, riding conditions have gone from, I'll think about it, to you're missing out.  Groomers are out and the ten day forecast is looking great, with more snow on Wednesday.  So what ever excuse you have for not coming, is on you.  Because winter has finally gotten to Old Forge and it's time to enjoy it.

What will we get?

 As I'm putting together today's video, the radar is showing the leading edge of the storm is in Utica.  So it shouldn't be long before we start seeing some snow.  The 20 below this morning even froze down the sloppy snow at the end of the driveway.  The snow that is loaded with salt from Rt 28.

No Regrets..............

 A few rooms had canceled for this weekend, after reading some of the reports on the riding conditions.  But after seeing the video I posted on Thursday, they changed their minds and headed north for a weekend of riding.  Guess what?  Everyone went out and had a great day of riding.  Except maybe Ken.  He had some sled problems.

Video of trails............

 I got my sled out, went for a little ride, took video and put on 20 miles.  What did I find for conditions?  Better than I thought with the limited snow.  Don't think you're going to blast down the trail at 60 and have it stick in the corner or go any place you want to.  It is pick and choose.  But you can go out and get in some seat time.  The video today, is over 20 mins. long of trail footage.  Take a look and you decide if you want to sit at home or come ride.

You can speed up the video by going into settings at the bottom right and changing the playback speed.

What will we wake up to?

 Forecast showed snow for us today.  Late afternoon we started getting a light drizzle and it's still doing it 9:45pm.  But as I said in the video.  It may be a good thing.  As it is firming up the snow we do have and helping make base.  I'm wondering what it will do over night.  Will it stay drizzle at 27 degrees and freeze or change over to snow?

Got the predicted..............

I didn't want to sound like Dave and say the lake effect wouldn't amount to much. So I kept my thoughts to myself on how much snow we would get from it.    We did get 5 or 6 but nothing more.  One thing is for sure, the cold has settled in, we had 16 below this morning.

Hope it's more..........

Forecast is still calling for 2 to 7 from lake effect.  I was really hoping to see some good wet snow over the last 24 hours.  But all we got was a light coating of ice and a dusting of snow.  At 9pm the wind has picked up and we are starting to see lake effect.  Cross your fingers that Old Man Winter points the snow guns at us.
