The Overview

Mild weather is back and so is the snow – last night. We received about 10cm on our back deck. The trees are all coated in a wonderful layer of white. When the sun comes out it will be picture time! The roads are another story. Every plow is out working to clear them back to black. The sun later in the day will be a great assist. Til then, careful driving is a must. The snow mobile trails will love this latest snow as will the ski hills – a little powder skiing is always a plus. There might be some snow streamers tomorrow otherwise a pretty clear few days. We will drop in temp on Thurs, but back up fore the weekend.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -1C(-2C) and it will rise to +2C (FL-1C) in the afternoon with some sunshine and then drop to -7C (FL -11C) overnight. Mild weather til Thursday.

The winds are more settled coming from the NW fore most of the day at less than 10kph finally ending up out of the South later in the day. Tomorrow they will shift back to the West around 4PM and pick up speed to 20kph.
