No Blizzard Yet, but Mist Lake has Sprung a Leak

Maybe the blizzard will come Wednesday.
The slush is back on Mist Lake. You won't drown, but you will be wading over most of the lake.

Ski trails: Very good with some potential for icing
Snowshoe trails: Boot hike until the blizzard. Avoid Mist Lake until a good freeze.
Bikes: Great to Dog Lake. Fine to Mist Lake with drifting and a narrowing tread across open areas, but I don't recommend it unless you want to drag your bike through mush across the lake.

2 Inches of Powder

Ski trails have powder in the track, but should be skied in by now. Snowshoe trails have tracks all the way around. An eagle was hanging out at Mist Lake.

A fat bike has already been out to Mist Lake today. Conditions should be even better Sunday morning.

Ride Mist Lake

Conditions were even better that during the group ride last month so I was able to ride the Mist Lake loop with minimal dabs. Going fast, that's 1:15 of single track on snow.

Inch of New Snow

Ski trails are groomed. Snowshoe trails all have tracks, and there is no more slush on the lakes.
Fat Bike Conditions
Big Bog Loop: perfect
Dog Lake: fine
Mist Lake: difficult, but worth an attempt

BearPaw put on a fun bike race today. Next year's Underdown fat bike rally should have some kind of "race."

Little Icy

Ski Trails: Groomed Thursday,a bit icy but good
Snowshoe Trails: Pretty, tracks all the way around. Boot hike when frozen. Snowshoe when melty.

Mist Lake Loop: Too soft
Dog Lake Loop: Good riding, soft or icy in spots
Big Bog Loop: Nice ride, rode the whole Bumpy Bog - fun
A & Z: Plush
Snowmobile trails: Good riding when frozen, Planning a Harrison expedition tomorrow morning
Prairie River east fork: Ice was unpredictable by Dudley. I knew I'd get soaked eventually so I turned around pretty quick, but found a nice ride on the river from Town Hall Road to Prairie Forks, but not quite all the way to Axen Road.
