Things have settled in nicely. The thin snow layer has settled and with the recent colder temps has firmed up considerably. The snow has lost it's loft and without it being an insulator the ground has started to freeze and stopped melting the snow from below. We now have a firm, fast snow cover on some land based places. We are now fully operational for lessons and are scheduling clinics as we type this. If you have been waiting to sign up do so now. If you have gift certificates call us and we will get you scheduled.

WARNING. No ice is ever 100% safe. We offer condition reports as a service to our students and clients who are familiar with the area and as a source of general condition information to others. These reports are not intended to replace common sense or up to the minute first hand knowledge of a given area. Nor is it a substitute for common sense. When in doubt don't go out.
