What a difference..............

 I just looked back at last years chart for New Years Eve and there was only one guest at the motel., tonight is a different story.  It's not like the old days, but it sure is better than last year.  Most of the day there has been a steady flow of sleds heading to Fastrac for gas.  Temps climbed over night from seven degrees into the 20's and we stayed in the 20's all day.  Just had a guest stop into the office and said they did 103 miles today.  Overall he seemed pleased with the trail conditions.  As I was putting everything together for todays blog.  A call came in on the fire dept radios for a sled in the lake.  So for those of you that may be thinking about going on the lakes.  STAY OFF they are not safe.  Hope you have something fun planned for the evening.

Got two for you today.........

Sorry I haven't posted, it's been a little crazy around here the last few days.   Thanks to those of you with's nice knowing your missed!  We got snow and with it came lots of people....which is a good thing.  It's nice being able to pay the bills on time.   Yesterday we picked up another 4 plus inches over the course of the day.  Today I have two videos for you and I'm guessing one of them is going to upset some people and others may say it's about time.

It's adding up........

Well we got it, as I am sure you have seen.  Another nice round of  snow that has added to the base and improved the riding conditions.  I'd put the total around a foot to a foot and a half.  I can tell you this, it took me three and a half hours to do the plowing and snow blowing this morning.  The snow piles are now larger than I think they where at any point last year.

One person got it right.

The webcam I showed you a picture from is at Nelson's Cottages in Inlet.  It looks out over 4th lake right at the boat ramp.  The same ramp you would use to get on to 4th lake.  So it should be a fun cam to keep an eye on this winter.  Here is the link to it

Merry Christmas !

I'll make it short and sweet.  Picked up 3 inches over night and it looks like more to come.  More later.


Forecast is still looking good for the upcoming week and snow over the next few days.  Conditions sure have turned around when you think just last week on Tuesday the front yard was green.  If we get this next round of snow our conditions could be better than they where at any time last year.    Go figure....but only time will tell.  I'm headed out to clear the snow away from in front of the trail cam and then it's time for Christmas dinner.

Old Forge, New York Trail Report

We have a few people in and the feedback I am getting from them is, we're having fun!   Traffic has been light today again and that is really going to help in setting up the base.  There has been light snow in the air all day and by the way the forecast looks, it may be this way most of the week.  It appears that Old Man Winter and Mother Nature must be back on talking terms, because conditions sure are shaping up for snowmobiling and skiing here in Old Forge.  The trail cam has been on and off because of the snow sticking to the trees and playing games with the wireless feed.

First act is getting great reviews!

Sorry this is so late.  Let's just say it's been one of those days!  The snow started Thursday night and appears to winding down now at 8:30pm Saturday.  All in total we got over a foot of snow and the stuff that came down yesterday was heavy and wet, great base making snow.  I saw a few sleds gassing up today, but traffic has been light, which is good.  A few sleds out packing it down, but not enough traffic to tear it up.

The stage is set !

Over night we had 3 or more inches of snow before it changed over to R.  But the R didn't last long and it changed back over to snow again and has been snowing since.  Out front at 1pm we are close to half a foot of heavy wet snow on the ground and still coming.  With the cold temps that are predicted for this coming weekend, the stage could very well be set for the up coming season.  Cross your fingers and keep on dancing!

Keep on Dancing ! ! !

Looks like there may be something coming in tonight.  But like always you never know for sure till it's on the ground.  It was in the teens over night and things froze down very nice.  So keep dancing and cross everything you got!  Sorry about the audio, had the mic turned up to high.

What can I say.........

Don't believe everything you read on here.    As some people have nothing better to do than try and get other people upset with some of the things they post.

Boy did we...........

have some R over night.  Someone else posted about it also.  If it was only cold enough for it to have been snow, we would have gotten a nice base started.  But you know how the saying goes.  Wish in one and.......
So those of you that haven't been dancing.  Get up off of your butt and get moving.  I Don't care if you look like a fool or not!  For any of you that have seen me, know I do.

Old Forge Snow

I just looked back at my records and things aren't going much different this year than last.  Yes we may of had a little more snow by now last year.  But it really didn't matter much, because it melted off during warm ups.  It's nice to have the snow coming early and building base.  However this part of the season isn't the most important and it really doesn't matter how much snow we have.  As most people are doing the holiday thing and aren't up riding any way.  Yes a few may be here, but not many.  The snow will come and when it does the trail crew will be out doing what they do the best.  Making great riding conditions out of very little.

SnoDeo Weekend 2012

The kick off of the sledding season starts this weekend with Snodeo and yes it will be going on even with the lack of snow.  However I am sure the demo rides have been put on hold.  But the Annual 120cc & Kitty-Cat Races are on, starting at Noon on Saturday.  As you'll see in the video we had a great start going and then we lost it all.  On the bright side we are getting some frost in the ground.  So when it does start snowing it won't take long for it to pile up and yes it will snow.
