We are already getting calls about the opening of ATV trails in Jackman. Even though this winter has not been the coldest or snowiest, This is still Jackman. We do indeed still have snow out there, mostly at the higher elevations, and our lakes are still frozen.
Now, normally, the club tries to get our trails open by Memorial Day weekend. (the rule of thumb up here) Thee have been times when they were able to open them earlier in May but It always depends on when the snow melts, the ground thaws and the water runs off…end of Mud Season.
SO, yes if you want to ride the ATV trails this year, give us a call to make a reservation. You can ride from your cabin. BUT do not plan to ride before the end of May. When we know more, we will let you all know.
I should write Winter madness 2016 as this has been one odd winter 😕 It will snow 2-4 inches and then 2 days later rain; temperatures at a minus 20 then back to 30 the next day; and even odder is when it was 38 one day, it snowed then down to 10 degrees and it rained. Shall I continue with the oddities or do you get the point:?: One crazy winter.
Last week, we got about 4 inches of snow in town with reports of about 10 inches northeast of us. Then of course, everyone wanted to come and ride. I think town was beyond full this weekend. Today, we did get about 2 more inches of that white fluffy goodness. Then we heard some rain on Tuesday but more snow on Friday ❓
Throughout this crazy weather, we have kept an excellent base so any added snow has offered decent riding all winter. Nothing like our usual but for those who want to ride, we had the opportunities.
We wonder what the rest of March will bring. Forecasters are saying temperatures up to the 40s, some rain and some snow. HMMMM that sounds familiar. 😮
SO hopefully, this El Nino will go away and we will get back to having those awful winter seasons we love in 2017 😀
With the crazy winter we have had this year, good luck trying to figure out this years Ice Out Date on Big Wood. Ice was not even in until well after January 1st. The last ice depth read was only about 2 feet thick.
SO let the guessing begin.
So how this will work:
Choose your date, then add a comment to this post with your guess as to the date the ice will go out this year. We can only accept one date per person. If you post the same date that is already posted, your post will not be recognized. (If more then one person chooses a date before I can post their comment, I will go by who posted the comment first.)
The winning date will be what the Town of Jackman records as the ice out date for 2016.
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 January 31, 2017.
The deadline to post your vote this year is 8am on April 10th, 2016.
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)
