Winter Update – January 31, 2014
It is snowing! Not a heavy snow, but we will take any snow Mother Nature sends us right now. This morning I felt overdressed in my hat & mittens while I waited for the school bus to pick up the boys. It was 20 degrees above zero!
Snowmobile groomers are out today. They made a trip to Eagle Bay and then headed out into the Moose River Plains. They will make another trip to Eagle Bay before ending the day.
Cross-country ski trails have all been groomed over the last few days also. Groomers are reporting all trails hard packed and in good condition. The sledding hill looks good and the ice skating rink is in excellent shape.

It is cold! Currently 1 degree out there. Above Zero!
Finally got some snow so the groomers could go out! Fern Park has been groomed, but I do not think the golf course has been touched yet. Snowmobile trails were groomed yesterday and out again today in the Moose River Plains and towards Eagle Bay.
Ice skating rink is excellent, sledding hill has snow (and is getting primed for the Cardboard Sled Race on February 22!!)

What can I say? It is snowing! Ever so lightly, but still snowing! We have received about an inch of new snow over the last couple days and in some places this is the only snow on the ground.
The trails are marginal – which means little coverage, bare spots, and the groomers (both snowmobile & cross-country) are not out due to lack of snow to work with.
The ice skating rink has been closed, but we are hoping to be able to open it tomorrow (Friday).

Had to close the skating rink – it has about an inch of water on it
Yes, we are back to rain and warm temperatures, so there will be no grooming of trails for a while. Although it looks like it is getting colder, and they are forecasting snow for tomorrow
Hopefully the next post will be better!

Brr! It is cold! In the sun, my thermometer is showing 7 degrees above zero. It was just as cold, maybe colder, yesterday, but the groomers were out! We received about 6-8 inches of new snow in the last 24 hours. Yes, only inches.
Snowmobile trails are in fair to good condition. May be thin or icy in spots, but a ride today should be real nice!
Cross country trails at Fern Park were groomed yesterday. A report from the groomer reads: Fern Park groomed. A few wet spots – some rough spots under some of the pine trees. Overall real good. Talked to a guy by Ralph’s Run. He sais it was excellent out with the new snow!
Ice skating rink was able to open yesterday after being closed for a couple days and is now in excellent condition. And the sledding hill looks good!
As of January 6, 2014 we have reached our 10 jeweler limit for the July 2014 “Arts in the Park”!
Any jewelry applications received after January 6, 2014 will be returned. Sorry!

Brr… Chilly start to this morning with temperatures reading -18! Currently the sun is shining and it is up to -12! Beautiful day in Inlet, NY.
We have received almost 2 feet of snow over the last 3 days. The groomers have been out on both the snowmobile trails and the cross country ski trails (Fern Park & Inlet Golf Course) working in the new snow to keep up the fairly smooth base that has been started.
Ice skating rink is in nice conditions and there is snow on the sledding hill.

There is a couple inches of new fluffily snow out there. Not enough for the groomers yet. Trails are in marginal condition.
Ice skating rink is open! Sledding hill is thin.

Happy First Day of Winter! Oh wait, is that rain?
I am sad to say that, yes, it has been raining on & off since yesterday. We started out with a good amount of snow on the snowmobile and ski trails and the groomers did get it all packed before the rain, so maybe it will not hurt as much as we think. But today might not be a fun day to be out there. Temperatures are going to drop on Monday, and we may see this rain turn to snow before Christmas!
The Ice Skating Rink is closed, and the sledding hill is pretty wet.
Groomers will not be out on the trails today.
