The Overview

Welcome back Winter – unless you have to travel today. This snow front will stay with us through today and tomorrow and leave behind snow streamers for a few more days. The NW winds will pull moisture from GBay and dump it on us. The roads are tricky with a Special Weather Statement advising against anything but necessary travel. The sledding and skiing will be on some new white stuff which will be fun. The Spring forecast is for normal temps – but what has normal become? It is forecasting above normal precip fore our region which could lead to some flooding. Wiarton Willie is nervously awaiting Spring – is he right?

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -8C(-14C) and it will hold at -8C (FL-16C) in the afternoon and then slip to -14C (FL -22C). Old Man Winter has released the Polar Vortex to come south for a couple of days.
The ill winds start the day from the NW in the 15kph range and stay there fore the day bringing the snow all day. There is a confluence of winds coming from different directions that is centered near Belleville. These winds are ideal snow makers coming across GBay and will remain in this mood through tomorrow.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 6:59AM, Sunset – 6:01PM. Gotta love the line up of 6s that will carry us for the next few weeks! The sun and wind will work their magic now getting us closer to Spring. March 17th – equinox.

Road Report

Road report – The road in the lee of GBay is showing as snow covered – all of them. A ride home from Toronto last night showed no signs of pavement the entire way we ran on snow-packed highways. Today is not supposed to be much better. Non essential travel should likely be avoided today. The plows are all out – but Mother Nature holds the cards.

School Bus Status

School bus report – ALL MUSKOKA BUSSES CANCELLED TODAY!

Snowmobile Report

Snowmobile Trail Update – OFSC is reporting 22521 km of open trails. Trails in our region are showing signs of stress. As you move East or North, the trails look better. This new snow will provide some relief and possibly reopen some trails. But most of the sledding will have to happen in the North for March.

Ski Report

The Ski Hills are still in good shape with nearly all runs and lifts open. The bases look good which should carry them into Spring Break. The new snow will make for fun skiing on the weekend. Detailed info at onthesnow.ca/Ontario.

Course Update

There are 43 days til green grass. Hard to believe in the midst of this snow assault we face til the weekend. New snow will be coming to take away the old snow. The sun and wind will be shrinking the snowpac closer to the grass. Your clubs will know this and will want to hit a ball. Do you? Is your game ready for the golf season? We know you are getting restless to golf with your friends. The golf bug bite will continue to itch and needs to be scratched. While getting warmer, it is still not warm enough to get outside and play. Nothing beats a few holes of golf with your family. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and ready fore you and your foursome. Or bring 8 and play a two-person scramble with 4 teams. Times are full today so book now for tomorrow! It is time to start getting the swing in shape fore opening day, or before you might be headed South fore a golf trip. Call the clubhouse 7056461060 to book your time.

The grass will be glad it has its snow covering in this chill. The melt has started to expose green grass. Old Man Winter got grumpy and decided to hide this grass – but this is only temporary.

When the golf bug bites and you can’t find a tee deck open anywhere, what do you do? You head to Muskoka Highlands where we have a state of the art hi-def simulator at the ready fore your game.
