The webcam shot showing blue skies but don-t let it fool you. The temperature is about a Minus 8 but the chill factor is about a minus 25 in ton. Can-t say what the chill factor is on the lake though. BRRRR 😯 still pretty darn cold out.
Dress warm and have fun!
Busy weekend and some of our guests said the trails were great with a few areas that were icy but all in all, riding was good. Except for last evening. WOW 😯 The wind storm that blew through the region was incredible. One group who were trying to get home said it was pretty rough seeing the trail. But the made it home safe. I do not have a detailed trail report except to say with all the extreme cold, there is some areas that are icy especially around curves so use caution. Our groomers went out last night and will again this week so riding at least in our region should be good this weekend. More snow due on Friday.
Ice Fishing Report: I think these guys said it best in our guest journal.
“Had a banner day of fishing. Too many flags to count. Limited out on Salmon, Brook Trout and Splake and Perch. All good size, quality fish. Had the best day of Ice Fishing I-ve ever had. PLUS the accommodations are top notch, good people, good place, great fishing. What else does a person need? From Tom, Steve, CHuck and Steve”
The wind has been gusting all night but when I first took a picture of this snowy mountain, it was calm on the ice. Then the wind picked up (#1) and as you can see by #4, the blowing snow made a misty view of my beautiful snowy sun touched mountain. Still beautiful though don-t you agree?
The latest ice depth reports as of today are about 10 inches near the eastern shore and 8-10 inches near Gander Brook. Some say there are 2 layers of ice in areas. Most likely because the lake froze, then we got snow, then rain then snow, then very cold temperatures.
Most are doing well so far … at least they say they are 😉 You know how it goes “I caught one THIS BIG”
We got a lot of snow and finally, the groomers are in control. With the cold weather we have been having is only making the trail conditions better. All trails in the region have been groomed. Some areas south have water holes which may have frozen up since last report but use caution. The club south are still working on summit trail as well as Johnson Mtn. but it should be all ready by the weekend. Reports from Rockwood trails are also good.
So come on up, take a ride.
