Was just up to Great Sacandaga Lake (NW of Albany) yesterday and conditions are "No go" unless you want to wear a wetsuit or get very wet. Basically 3 + inches of standing water on top of the ice/slush mess. Temps have been near 50 since Monday so until we get a freeze and then snow its game off unless you want to ride in dry/wetsuit
We thought about it as it was blowing W 20 to 25 and 50 degrees but decided against it since we prefer scotch in our ice water.
Don't know about Champlain but imagine its very similar
