Is it just me or did this area get almost nothing so far this season? Is this unusual?
Yes, it is very unusual!! Old Forge/Tug Hill on the average gets up to 300 inches of snow per year. I have had to postpone 2 trips to the Andirondacks because they have nothing. With it being 60 degrees in NY today, it only made matters worse (melted any base they had).

I hope they get some soon, I plan to spend a week in Feb. I remmember last year I went in mid Jan and they had plenty of snow. I dont think total amount this year has been no more than 5 or 6 inches:mad:

You can actually ride in the area u just cant be as aggressive on the trails right now but theres enough snow to keep your sliders from tearing up and carbides in one piece. Looks like this week will be a good one being that the lake effect is really starting to kick in. The lakes might be ready as well by this weekend. Big Moose to Glen Moore was good to go two weeks ago but Im not sure what that sixty degree weather did to it last week. I was up there but didnt get a chance to check that lake.

I'm on my way up there the second week of FEB. I see there are some improvments since this last storm, but Its nothing like last year!! I'm hopeing for some good lake effect blast to save the season up there, but , I'm sure I'll still go. A weeks vacation frorm work is better spent on the Trails, even IF they're a little bare.
I have plenty of snow here in Ohio, but the fact that nobody can find me is my motivation to get AWAY, FAR away from the shop.:D

We cancelled our trip up there.......Headed to Canada instead. Sorry NY, but you got ROBBED of snow this season( so far ):mad: I've ridden almost 500 miles here in Ohio, and going to add more if the snow comes back.
We'll see what it's like north of the border.
Talk to yah guys and gals in a week and a few days, as we leave in the morning.
