Once again, the Steelers are going to the Superbowl. If you have ever stayed with us before, you are well aware that I am a Steeler fan (born with it) and proud of it.
SO, for those of you staying with us next weekend, if you wear your black and gold Steeler shirt or wave your terrible towel ON ARRIVAL, we will take $5.00 off.
Reports from our guests this week is that there is some amazing riding going on here. “We have not seen a bad trail yet” Ironically, 2 of the guests are from RI where they are getting the majority of storms. Anyhow, one went south to Eustis the other day and had a great ride. Another went with a group up past the Northeast Carry to old trains. I do not know much about it but it is a great site to see Paul said. The ride was about 290 miles round trip, crossed 7 lakes and although a long day, had a fantastic ride.
Looks can be deceiving. Yes the skies are blue and sun is shining so it really looks like a fantastic day to be ice fishing but it is about minus 1 degree out with a chill factor of minus 16 😯 Bundle up ❗
[u]Monday[/u]-Sunny and 1 degree! ~3 of us visiting from Cape Cod. We have been snowmobiling in Jackman for years but this is our 1st time staying in the Cozy Cove Cabins. Great spot ❗ ~ 60 mile this afternoon ❗
[u]Tuesday[/u]-7am 2 degrees & snowing. Snowed all day about 6 inches in town. Just what the trails needed. Another 60 miles this afternoon.
[u]Wednesday[/u]-24 degrees at 7am. 102 mile ride today-The Birches/Rockwood and back. Great day ❗
[u]Thursday[/u]- 6 degrees at 6:30 am-sunny morning! 105 miles today and another route to Rockwood ❗ * My amazing Boyfriend proposed to me here in Jackman! And we are engaged ❗ ❗ ❗
[u]Friday[/u] 6am. Packing up and headed back to the Cape. We had a great time as always and a wonderful stay at Cozy Cove! Thank You ❗

This is our 2nd stay at Cozy Cove but our 1st in the Eagles Nest. This cabin is PERFECT:!: ❗ Greg and the kiddos took a walk across the ice. Checked our some of the neighbors ice traps. They even got to see someone catch a fish. The sun is shining and it should be a wonderful day.

Yes we got snow 🙂 and Maggie LOVES running around in it.
It looks like we got about 6+ inches here in town so far but we believe that the trails got more. This is great for both snowmobiling and for winter fun!
BRRR it is pretty cold out there but that is not stopping ice fishing on Big Wood. The lake seems alive today. I wish I could take a plane ride and do an aerial shot.
This one is one of Corey-s shacks surrounded by ice fishers and snowmobilers off in the distance heading out to the Lake Trail.
This is the shot from our webcam today. Ice fishing is still great but also, this last storm has improved our snowmobile trails. 🙂
We only got about 3 inches here in town but the trails got about 8 inches. Groomers went out last night and most trails are looking pretty good according to the Border Rider Club. In town trails still need more snow as well as about the first 5 miles south, but the lake trail will take you right up to the clubhouse.
One more good storm would be great but at least, now people can have some decent riding again. 🙂
Even though the snow conditions are not optimal for snowmobiling this week, the ice fishing conditions were great. Although the temperatures were in the single numbers a couple mornings, the sun came out and very little wind. Our guests this weekend all did pretty good…Salmon, Splake and some really big Trout.
Although the riding was exceptional for the end of 2010, the warm weather and rain did not fair well for the trails to begin 2011. Luckily, we have had extremely cold weather since then and the groomers have been out to try to make some of them ride-able.
The Border Riders Club reports that conditions are closer to early spring riding right now with some areas of dirt or water. In town trails are not good at all but you can access the northern trails from your cabins across Big Wood. The northern trails (Border Riders Loop) seem to be the best of all at this point.
The good news is that the lake is well frozen and fishing is great ❗
This was a picture of the snow that fell on November 20th. See the nice big fluffy flakes? We need to see this again so hop to it people ❗ I cannot be the only one dancing 😆
