Big Wood ice out contest 2019

I was reminded 3 times last week…”when are you going to post the ice out contest?”

Well, here you go.

Time for you all to guess when the ice will go out on Big Wood this year. As most of Maine, we had snow in November, and the lake froze over well before season open. As of today, the fisherman are needing an extension on the augers, so over 3 feet thick.

We have had a very cold, blowy, snowy winter so far. Today I think it is the warmest at 38.

The ice out date last year was May 5th at 4:30 am.

So how this will work:
Choose your date and time. Choosing a time is helpful if multiple people choose the same date.  The person closest to the time will win.

Add a comment to this post with your guess. We can only accept one entry per person/email.

The winning date will be what the Town of Jackman records as the ice out date and time for 2019.
The winner will get 50% off one night when they stay with us 2 or more days or 1 full night free if they stay 4 or more days. This discount will expire December 31, 2019.

The deadline to post your vote this year is 8am on April 15th, 2019.

Please Note: Only one discount permitted per stay at Cozy Cove Cabins and our same discount rules apply. (payment by check or cash, cabin minimum must be met)

LET’S THE GUESSING BEGIN!

Sled from NH

Did you know you can ride your sled from Pittsburg NH to Jackman Maine?  These guys did it.   They said if you only stop for gas etc, it would be about a 5 or 6 hour ride.  Not a bad day I suppose.

Of course, nothing is ever that easy.  Someone always breaks down.

Going home though it was bitter cold with high winds but we were glad they made it home ok.

We have had people ride here from Millinocket, Eustis and even a father son came from Vermont once.

February wind

WOWZER!     We are having gust of 41mph today.    And the Jackman Airport reporting gusts of 56mph.

Not a day to be outside.

One of our guests posted a mini video as she was reporting the wind using a banana as a microphone.  It’s pretty funny.  You can see it on our Facebook page

After the snow

 

We had about 14 inches of snow last week, then a bit of rain which really only improved the trails. Yesterday the groomers all went out and worked their magic.

This photo is the bridge that crossed over Moose River.

But I like this one as he captured the trail in front of him as well as what is behind him. Nice shot Matt Stone!

Reports from our guests and others on the BRC FB page is that the trails are awesome, “mint” and perfect.  The skies are blue today and a perfect day to be out on the trails.

More snow in the forecast!
