Temps were in the high 20's on Monday, and in the 30's on Tuesday. It is 17 F at 1:30 pm on Wednesday.
Snow Depth At Landing Parking Lot:
7" on 11/11, trace of snow on 11/23 which turned into water due to temps being in the 30's. Ground covering is now wet and heavy.
11/25 Due to the open leads and lack of snow it is highly suggested not to try leave the Landing via the launch. You can access the Big Su through the access trail that is north of the Rolly Creek, however it has only been used by two people as far as reported today. Kroto Slough is frozen over, however there is some overflow in spots. Because of the lack of snow the ride will not be fun on the ice due to all of the jumbles. There are open areas of water, but they can be driven around. No river trails have been established/marked out there so there are tracks out on the ice that go in different directions and may not lead to safe places. Conditions have changed in the past few days due to the warmer temps and lack of snow. Snowmachiners should consider saving the gas for later on in the winter unless they are highly experienced or really need to get in or out to their cabins. A rider came in today after spending 2.5 hours to get from Fish Creek off the Kroto Slough to the Landing. It usually takes him around 45 minutes to an hour.
