We have open water on Big Wood


Another beautiful morning here in Jackman. Are you ready to get your fishing pole out ❓ The water level is high but it is nice to see open water again. Fishing, swimming and boating on Big Wood…:D

Ice out this year was on Tuesday May 5th at 2:15 PM. Below is the snapshot I took from our cam that same morning about 7AM.


Congrats Denise for winning this years Ice Out Contest. See you in August.

Happy Easter weekend


Yes it is snowing, big heavy flakes, in Jackman. Even though it warmed up to 56 yesterday, the trails are holding and with the extra bit of fluff, one could be riding all week. We have reports that the trails have been groomed up to Pittston and beyond this week.

We hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend, enjoying family and friends, but remembering what Easter is really about.

First snow 2015 Season


Above is a snapshot from our new webcam taken this morning after the first snow of the season. About 2 inches of heavy snow here in town. Perhaps more in the mountains.

It-s going to be a great winter season so be sure and visit our webcam on our homepage to see what is happening here at Cozy Cove Cabins and on Big Wood.

New webcam


This is a current view this morning from our new webcam. We are still in the “figuring out” phase of it so please bear with us. The new cam should give you a larger and clearer image to see what is happening hear on Big Wood. When you see the upload now on our homepage, first, you will notice it is a view from our house and second, that you have to move the page around to see the whole image. It will all be better soon.

We will still only post snapshots instead of live streaming but what really happens on Big Wood that we need to see on video? 😉

As soon as we get it working the way we need it to be, we will re post information for you.

Below is a snapshot I got last night around sunset after a very stormy day.


Ice out 2014 help


I took this picture this morning to help those of you who have not posted your entry for our Big Wood Ice Out Contest.

But please, do not let what looks like water be deceiving. We had 3-4 feet of ice just last weekend although I am not willing to go out there now to test it. SO what looks like water could be a result of the rain we had or from the melting snow we had.

Cast your vote soon. Deadline for entries is April 15th.

Happy SPring 2014


I took this picture a couple days ago…then we got another few inches. It is amazing me that the snow is not going anywhere. The trail riding the past week or so has been incredible.

I hear others talk about mud season as they are also beginning their gardens. They post images of dirt, mud, green grass. And they only live a few hour south of us. I am a bit jealous I think. 😕

I was told that the ice on Little Big Wood was just thicker then the auger length. Another told us that Big Wood was still over 4 feet thick.

So what do you all think? Will we still have snow in May? June? July? 😯 I think not because when the warm hits, it will probably go fast. Rain expected tomorrow so we will see what happens this week.

Remember to cast your vote on our Ice Out Contest. I am surprised at some of the late May dates but we shall see.

Happy Spring.

A storm is coming


Mother nature has no idea what she is bringing us day to day. It rained this morning, then the sun came out and now, in the Northwest skies, you can see the dark clouds and hear the thunder.

Hope the kids get that boat in soon.

Weather update for May 2013


We had a hard frost last night but today, the sun is shining but there is still a bit of a breeze. I am hopeful that it will be warming up.

The forecast calls for possibility of showers next couple days but the weekend looks promising.

The good news for you fisherman: the rain and cooler temps has helped to get a bite.
