Some of the lakes that are usually late season options, such as Sunapee,(see pic) are out of play for any reasonable margin of safety due to this new ice. While others which are usually out of play, like Silver, have variable 9"-1.5' of ice. Though after the current snow cover thins and the sun can start working on it, thing will degrade quickly. After yesterday's inspections we have a good idea what will go bad first.
We will continue to lessons for at least one more week on ice as conditions allow and make every possible effort to know what the ice is doing at our chosen riding areas. We may be able to continue on land based snow for a few more weeks if we don't get too much warm up.
