    Default Boyleston - Winona - Barnes Corners - Carthage 2/ 13

    Dropped in Boyleston at Bargey Rd lot at 12:30. Wart Rd lot was full as was plowed road in front of Pulaski Boyleston’s north barn. First time ever I couldn’t park at Wart Rd.

    Up Bargey to Tucker and across county rt 17. The swampy area along 17 was hard, flat & solid! Then thru the woods to the S51B. The section of woods east of 17 seemed to be wider than in years past. Up thru Bice & Nichols. the plowed section here & all the other plowed roads are bare and were frozen solid. the little snow on the banks was rock hard and not worth grabbing for lube & cooling.

    Did the detour along the power lines to Barnes Corners and hit Tugger’s for lunch. A gazilion sleds, including some antique SkiDoos.

    Headed north to wards Carthage to avoid all the idiots I ran into that were either riding in the middle of the trail or on the left side. Too many to count!

    I saw maybe 10-sleds, including the antique ones, going to Carthage & back. The fields north of Barnes Corners towards Carthage & Copenhagen are thin & burned off. I didn’t expect this because of how much snow they got this year. I turned around at the Copenhagen loop. Just too many bare spots with lots of ice.

    Overall Winona had lots of snow & should survive the big warmup. All trails today were very hard, mostly flat, with icy spots. It will be different Weds & Thursday. It was one of those days were I wish I had scratchers on the sled & I was watching the temp gauge because of how hard the trails were.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to drop in Boyleston and cruise Winona Weds & Thursday. The trails to Carthage & Copenhagen, don’t bother.

    The detour to Barnes Corners from Winona goes thru the power lines and you approach BC from the north.

    Nice report. I knew Carthage would be a stretch given last weekend they barely had enough even after the recent snow they got. Last Friday was epic conditions with low traffic.

    I am hoping that the area survives the warm up today and tomorrow... Otherwise its going to be a ****ty weekend up there...

    Default Nice report

    Trails have been really good these last two weeks of vacation.. The lake isn't froze over yet so we still have time for the LE machine to crank up..

    it's rare but Lake Ontario has completely frozen over on five recorded occasions: from about January 20 to about March 20, 1830; in 1874; in 1893; in 1912; and in February 1934.

    Dont forget about 2014. I think it was around 90% frozen that year.

    On another note, that detour really isn't in effect anymore. That was a 3 or 4 day event when Doug's Drive was closed a couple weeks ago.
