Happy New Year to all!
We are in the first week of January”"2010″” and it seems like the winter is going fast. We had our first big snow of the new year which amounted to 16″ more or less. It was a light snow but welcomed none the less. We already had all of our snowmobile trails frozen and had received about a foot of snow before Christmas so this new snow helped to fill in the voids and after a couple of groomings the trails are good in our area. there are locations near here where they didn’t receive as much snow and that had less snow to start where the conditions are marginal but we have had some neighbors staying in a cabin near us who have traveled over five hundred miles in the last week and were going out again this morning. They told me that Nash Stream is in good shape and that Phillips Brook was also good riding. These fellows had been to the Balsams from Pike Pond in Stark NH, and they said their trip went well. We need more snow to get to the excellent riding that we often have this time of year but overall the riding is good. We will let everyone know when we get that extra snow.
If any of you are interested in a good weather site to look at the forecast for this area I have found the enclosed site to be very good at predicting what we have coming and it follows:
We are using our Web Reserve system to make reservations for our cabin rental which can be accessed through our web site at Pikepondcabins.com and with the inclusion of Paypal to that system you can choose your dates and make the deposits from your home and it lets us know who is coming and when you will stay. We are always available to receive your phone calls and will gladly answer any questions that you have.
I will keep everyone posted as to the snow conditions.
