Oops double pic . Can't seem to edit. Funny , temps were close to -30 yet every 50- 60 k noticed engine temps creeping up. With the snow dust and temps tunnels were packing snow and freezing . had to stop and knock ice bigger than any pike I have caught out of the tunnel then engine temps dropped right back down.

I just pointed the summit north and went . It was all down hill . Saw the northland with 3 engines doing catwalks in front of the mill in Kap . I thought hmmm that must be Daxe's wife.

Mild, +single digit highs on the weekend unfortunately.

Friday was my second ride of the year.   ugg...

 

North Bay to Sundridge and back, were all perfect. 

 

Saturday they got mushy.

Sunday was +8* and melted a lot.  Got cold overnight and now everything is like a rock. hard, hard, hard.

 

Supposed to get a bit of snow early this week, 5cm Tuesday then nothing else.  Plus temps everyday after Mar 8th, minus temps at night though.

Hoping to start a trip on March 19th ( Friday )  starting in Kirkland Lake, & ending up in Kapuskasing. With all the rain & warm weather happening up there this week , will there still be enough snow left to do this trip ?

 

How much snow is in that area now ??

I don't think you have to worry about that.. snow depth is at least 3 ft... almost 3 ft of ice on area lakes... in all my years living here.. I have only seen once that most of the snow gone by end of March... this little bit of rain will only really mess with the powder riding...

Hey Ddaxe, are you up there around KL? Or are you closer to Cochrane? Thinking of running from Ramore to Smooth Rock on Tuesday next week, so I might follow up Sunday/monday to see how things are up there.

Cheers.

I'm closer to Cochrane.. was out for a bit of a run yesterday .. top few inches of snow was sticky ... was piling up in front of the sled... you should be alright.. the season is far from over up this way... not for a few weeks yet..

Looks like Ramore is red. Too bad, I like to leave from there and head up around Cochrane.
I guess I’ll just keep driving and find a new place to stage.
