From what I hear from 300 miles away you can still ride in the
Barnes Corners / Montague area. They did not get tthe rain that was predicted. It is going to snow Friday night Saturday and Sunday a little but not a lot  . Might be a good weekend to go to camp and work on the sleds. Riding might be better saved for next weekend, I hope.

I live to the east of you. I rely on the site that I gave you and a friend of mine that has a house up there. If I talk to him this week I will post the conditions. On that site I gave you, you can check the web cams to see first hand on the conditions. The trail report Is very helpful too.

Here is the latest. I was up in Tug Hill last yesterday. Bottom line is that they need snow! You can ride out of Barnes Corners to Flat Rock ( about 25 miles one way), but there are 2 to 3 ft moguls. We managed to ride some of the less traveled trails and were able to blister the high side of the speedo a few times, but unless they get 8 to 12 inches before next weekend, it's over for now. It's AMAZING  to watch how fast the snow disappears as you drive off the hill.

Should be some decent lake effect Wednesday and
Wednesday night up on the hill.

A little early to tell how much though

EDIT: It's official now

Quote
...LAKE EFFECT SNOW IS LIKELY LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND
WEDNESDAY...

AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT WILL PASS THE REGION ON TUESDAY EVENING,
AND LAKE EFFECT SNOWS WILL DEVELOP BEHIND IT.

A BAND OF LAKE EFFECT SNOW IS EXPECTED TO DROP SOUTH ACROSS
NORTHERN ONEIDA COUNTY AFTER MIDNIGHT TUESDAY, INTO ONONDAGA,
MADISON AND SOUTHERN ONEIDA COUNTY BY DAYBREAK WEDNESDAY.
THE BAND MAY PERSIST ACROSS THIS AREA BEFORE DROPPING SOUTH
AND WEAKENING INTO MULTIBANDS OF LAKE EFFECT SNOW ON WEDNESDAY
NIGHT. INITIAL INDICATIONS ARE THAT MODERATE SNOW ACCUMULATIONS,
IN THE 3 TO 6 INCH RANGE, WILL BE POSSIBLE TUESDAY NIGHT INTO
WEDNESDAY.

RODE YESTERDAY OUT OF BARNES CORNERS TO OSCEOLA. TRAILS WERE QUITE RUTTED OUT AND LOTS OF WATER CROSSINGS. CAMP TWO AND CAMP FOUR WERE HORRIBLE WITH 3 FT MOGULS. THE BEST TRAILS WERE CLOSEST TO BARNES CORNERS. THE FLAT ROCK ROAD WAS DECENT. THE GROOMERS SHOULD BE ON TOP OF THIS SITUATION DOWN THERE. ARE THERE GROOMERS IN REDFIELD AND OSCEOLA?
