All trails are groomed and ready for the weekend.

It's the season for the long distance trips and riders are starting early in the morning. I've heard sleds zooming by as early as 8:30 am. Holy moly that must be cold.  Yesterday there were large groups out early. The motel in town was packed with sleds running and it wasn't even 9.

Even the road crossings are looking good because we have been getting a little skiff every say or two.

If the temperature ever shot up to -6 we would probably all be out in t shirts. It's crazy cold this winter.  So be sure to bundle up the kids if you take them out. We sometime forget that you are in a $70.00 pair of gloves and the kids are in the. $4.99 Walmart specials.

The sun has been shining all week and the days are getting longer. Snow is expected this weekend so that usually means warmer days. Let's hope so.

Come one up and ride.

Just a quick Friday update in case you are still undecided.

All trails in the MLSS system have been groomed with the last on being done now (to Bancroft).  So everything is in top shape for the weekend. We have had a light snowfall everyday this week so there is good coverage.

Baptiste Lake is now staked as well as Lake St Peter.

So get on up here and ride like the wind!

Have a great weekend

It is officially winter.  I have had to wear my boots three days in a row.  I don't like wearing boots so it has to be snowy for me put them on.  And put them on I have.

It has snowed  every day this week adding  quite a few inches to what we had.  I need my driveway plowed.  I hope the guy comes today.

Riders are happy with the trails.  The road crossings still look bad but things are much better once you get past that. Today would be a great day for a ride.  The sun is up, it's cold and crisp and shaping up to be a beautiful day.   It's looking good for the weekend also.

The temp is dropping but it didn't get nearly as bad last night as it was supposed to.  And that moon is an awesome sight.  Oh my.  A clear night with lots of stars and a giant full moon.  The last few days if you wake up during the night it looks like daylight outside.  Its just one of the things that makes living here worth it.

Here's hoping you can get up this weekend for a ride.  We are expecting more snow on Saturday and Sunday.

Back soon

I have two questions.  First which ground hog do you believe?  They never agree and quite frankly I think they both looked like they had been munching on some "funny mushrooms" this morning.  Just sayin!!!!!  Second:  Why did they through the ball when they could have just run it for a TD.  Just sayin!!!    

OK now on to the important things.  What a pleasant sight to see.  Fresh snow on top of a freshly groomed trail with no tracks to be seen.  That is what I saw this morning on my way out. Riders this weekend said that even though there was not too much snow riding this weekend was good. 

Lake St. Peter is now staked. No word on Baptiste yet.  It was not by last Friday.  I'll post as soon as I know.  They are riding it though. 

As I have said many times we get our snow up here in sensible amounts.  The south got blasted this morning and everything was cancelled.  Well our buses were cancelled this morning also but that happens often.  I barely had to brush off the car and the roads were fine.  We did get more snow and that was good.  And yes it is frickin freezing.  But that full moon and clear sky is a beautiful sight tonight.

More snow is expected later in the week. Don't know how much just some. 

The annual MLSS poker run is being held on Saturday, February 14. That is family day weekend.  It is the club's big fund raiser of the year.  A great value for only $10.00. Lots of prizes and good times. Please attend if you can and support your club.

I'll be back later in the week with an update on snow conditions.

Now I am going to relax on the couch with a glass of wine and ponder life.  Just kidding, I'll be watching TV and doing nothing.

Til next time.
