Thanks for the info Jan. The forecast looks good this week for Tug Hill. Early season east coast, enjoy it. Please give us some detail as things develop up there!

Are these new sites open to anyone? Does Tug Hill have snow already?
Thanks!

When we get them these sites will be open to any kite skiers and hopfully any time during this winter but we hope to find out today when we meet with them. The weather did not get cold so the lake Effict snow did not get going so will keep you all posted. jan :D

Any snow over this last weekend? We got a couple inches in DC on Saturday (its already melting), just wondering if you guys got some too. Looking forward to heading up to your area soon. :)

Nice :D

The heaviest lake effect snow will start up near Watertown and Carthage and then drift south...targeting the Tug Hill plateau the vast majority of the time. Accumulations through Friday in the most persistent lake snow areas will likely exceed 3 feet.

:thumb: YeeHaw! It's snowing right now, schools are closed, kids are out sliding, and the wind! Gusting to 35 from the East! It's supposed to switch around to West for the weekend, but forecast is for 15-20 for the weekend, and until then(thu-fri) nukin winds, starting E today, switching around W tomorrow night. Temped to walk the 1/2 mile up the road with the 4M access and the board, to test farmer Petzoldt's field, but only 1/2 of it was hay, the other half was corn, and the stubble :angryfire: Jan, still without a car.:( I'm hoping the wife will have lot's of homework this weekend, and will let me use hers. Let us know where n when.
