Winter Update – January 3, 2014

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.

Winter Update – December 21, 2013

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.

Winter Update – December 18, 2013

Inlet Golf Course was groomed today for cross-country skiing! You can expect about a 4-5 inch loose base on the trail.

Groomer’s report on Monday for Fern Park said the lighted trail had been groomed, also Fifth Lake NE perimeter, Jasper, Walter’s Ski Trail, Woods Pasture, Pasture Trail all had around a foot of fluffy snow packed down to about 5-6 inches. Base was not hard yet, but another swing through today has firmed things up.

Ice Skating Rink is open and in good shape.

The sledding hill has snow and has seen quite a few sledders over the past couple weeks so is in fair to good condition.

Snowmobile groomer was heading out this morning to pan the FX Matts Trail between Limekiln and Red Dog Tavern. Local trails were all hit Sunday, Moose River Plains on Monday. Should be nice for this weekend!

Winter Report – December 14, 2013

Inlet snowmobile trails were panned yesterday. Limekiln to Gilbert and all inner trails were hit at least once. Moose River Plains was also done from the Inlet gate to Red River.

Today the groomer is hitting the trail to Eagle Bay, then will be parked for a demonstration at the Inlet fire hall for the Snowmobile Safety Course. After class it will head back into the MRP will a goal to make it to Silver Run.

The ice skating rink is open!  And there is lots of snow on the sledding hill!

The parks guys have been working hard to clear more than 80% of the cross-country ski trails at Fern Park and have even been able to groom a lot of them. Inlet Golf Course will be groomed on Monday.

Inlet’s One Square Mile of Hope Lives On

Friday, April 19th, 2013

It’s been over 18 months since Inlet earned the world record (for the second time) for the largest floating raft with 1902 canoes, kayaks, and guide boats held together only by hands. But, thanks to the magnificent photo by Nancie Battaglia, the event is still in the forefront of national periodicals. You will recall that Battaglia’s photo appeared in Sports Illustrated and National Geographic. Recently it reappeared in the March issue of Reader’s Digest and the May/June edition of Sierra Magazine.

Whether due to the photo going viral or just because the Inlet event offered a popular activity for paddlers, challenges to the record are popping up everywhere. So far no one has succeeded in besting the record, but this year there are four attempts, any one of which may find Inlet having to recapture the world record.

On August 17, 2013, a group in Illinois calling themselves Floatzilla ( will have a third go at the record, their first two attempts falling short, but gaining in numbers each time. They form their raft on the Mississippi River as part of a daylong series of water events.

Labor Day weekend will see two record attempts: on Saturday, August 31, a group in Sutton’s Bay ( will try for a second time to make their “Floatilla” on Lake Michigan larger than Inlet’s. Last year they were getting close with their over 1750 boat total. On Sunday, September 1, a new entry in the competition will try to break Inlet’s record. This group is the Vashon Youth and Family Services group ( on Vashon Island in Puget Sound near Seattle, Washington.

Another new contender is the New Hampshire Lake Association ( on the other side of the country. They will make their attempt on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire on Saturday, September 7.

The latter two groups have enlisted the aid of the One Square Mile of Hope Committee by way of conference calls. The Inlet group has generously shared the organizational information and tips they have gained from their two successful record-breaking events.

So far, OSM has not heard of any international attempts to wrest their world record title, but their fame has certainly spread from “sea to shining sea.” For further information about any of the challenges, go to their websites, listed above.
