Greetings and welcome!

The big storm and cold blast are still on track for late week and the weekend. Estimates on the storm vary, but are in the 4-12″ range. The scenario is being shown as a two to three day snow event rather than a short intense storm.

Right now the models are showing some agreement on a path that would take the storm about 100 miles south of ideal for heavy snow here. That can change and has. The risk is that if they push it another 100 miles south we could see significantly less snow.

I did a little traveling yesterday and got to see trails from here to Crivitz and a little to the west. All looked like they fared pretty well considering the snow depth. Last night Iron Snowshoe was seen panning the north end of the Caldron Falls Flowage area to pack the snow down. That was well timed with our warm day (right now 33 degrees and sunny). The snow should freeze into a nice hard base tonight when we return to the teens.

The late week storm will be a big key to having good trails for the Christmas to New Years stretch. Let’s hope for the best.

Have a good Tuesday and thank you for visiting!
