I just got to the cabin here on Tug Hill. It's currently snowing near Barnes Corners and at higher elevations. It's raining in lowville, but things are becoming icy and precipitation is transitioning to snow. Im hoping that people stayed off the trails today to save the base! I'll be riding Tug Hill or old forge tomorrow (depending on how trails look), so I'll let you all know how things look.

Thx for the update FB... debating on coming up tomorrow as it's the only day my son can ride. I hope the trails tighten up by morning and we get some fresh snow.

Hi all, I'm finally back to some reliable internet, so here's my update. Honestly, I think that all the doom and gloom reports all over Facebook are overblown. We put on about 200 miles this weekend, and saw some great conditions thanks to the recent snow. There are scattered water holes (talbots corners, brantingham system, southern tug hill, etc), so expect to see many idiots stuck. Unfortunately, there were a ton of riders who thought that they could hydroplane over water holes this weekend, and clubs have been forced to fish them out. Key is, if you drive cautiously, the water is easy to avoid. If it can't be avoided, turn around and choose a different trail. We towed three riders out this weekend with our sleds. One of which was riding a flatrock inn rental.

Ok, so let's talk trail systems. We rode c8a of the brantingham system, and conditions were actually quite nice. No water holes, and only some icy patches. The seasonal roads near flatrock and Barnes Corners are also quite nice, but avoid the southern tug hill system for now, as much of it is under water. Redfield also did a great job grooming Salmon river Road and Little Johns. C5B headed to work center was excellent as well.

Bottom line, stick to the higher elevations and seasonal roads, and you'll be able to do a ton of riding. And please stay out of the water!

Thx for the update FB... Yeah I stayed away based on the Facebook pics my son showed me. If I had heard things were hardening back up on the hill I would have been up today. Planning on going up Friday. Looks like another warm up is coming after this week.
