Wednesday High was 34 F. Low was 26 F Thursday morning.
Snow Depth At Landing Parking Lot:
Just over 3" of snow early Wednesday morning. During Wednesday it flurried some, and also was misty for about 2 hours. Fog set in Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
2/10 There are two small spots of overflow between the Yentna and Landing (sorry I don't have the specific locations). As of Wednesday the spots were easy enough to go through or skirt around. We received 3" here early Wednesday morning, up the Deshka they had about 6", north of Eight Mile Lake they had about 2', and south of Shell lake they had about 1.5' as of early yesterday morning. There are a lot of challenging conditions OFF trail as you head up north on Yentna, through the swamps to the west (Alexander Lake and above) and near Skwentna. There were several riders this past weekend that went off trail only to find themselves in 5 feet of snow (with overflow) without the correct machines for the conditions. There were several rescues made by other snowmachiners and by the Mountain Rescue Chopper. Trails are hard and bumpy, with the worst stretch from the Landing to the Deshka River.
