    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    This is the time of year when I'm in the garage throwin heel clickers makin sled noises

    Give it another 3 weeks but even then a low base will have ground debri still showing.

    Rode the Man-Bear-Pig around the lumber yard today. That first snow we got back in October was reduced to ice, the new 2" of snow was enough to slide around and spin some cookies. Can't wait.

    We finally have decent snow this morning! 5" to 6" overnight and still snowing. We had about a 4" base on the ground before hand. I'll be taking my jeep out to Cantwell and riding the my Beercat back in today or tomorrow if it keeps up.

    BRING ON THE SNOW!! Wooo Hoooo!! Looks like riding good by Thanksgiving once again!

    In general, Eureka is a very late season type of area to ride. Much of the snow is windblown and hardens up.

    Not much up the Parks. It's still early and the snow is coming in sparsely so far.

    Everything on the ground in Willow is frozen with about 2"-3" of snow. Just enough to hide the ice and make it interesting. This is the time of the year that parts desks love. Everyone is so antsy that they go out early and tear sleds up.... I hate to, but I will wait.

    If'n they have 15" at Lake Louise I'd be surprised. I live just 20 miles from there and don't have near that much. Maybe 15" total for the season but not total depth as of now.

    If you want to know what the snow conditions are Lake Louise are, look at this web cam view (note: look during the daylight hours):

    http://www.lakelouiselodge.com/weather/index.htm

    Also ... make sure you scroll down enough on this web page so you can see the temperature up there.

    Any updates on the Big Su leaving Deska Landing?
    I spoke to Roger at the landing yesterday, says the river is very rough from what he can see at the launch.
    Anyone made a run to their cabin yet and have better report?
    Thanks,
    BK
