    The big lake is pretty much wide open, and hardly any LES has fallen in January and February so far. Good thing November and December were snowy! Last year on this day was epic though!

    The backcountry still seems pretty darn good. No complaints from me.

    well hasn't snowed here more than about an inch and a half since LAST March!
    talk about a frustrating winter??
    still waiting for a real first snow fall period, never mind seeing trails open up?
    official closing of local trails is March 1st, so time is running out FAST here! might not even open this yr, and be the second time its ONLY ever happened if so!
    so, frustration, I got you beat I think , one ride in is better than ZERO LOL

    The past month has been a head scratcher for the yoop... it’s been a month since I’ve been up there. The weekend after I had a trail riding trip week and ever since I told myself and buddies we’ll go as soon as the next snowfall... well it’s snowed more here at home then it has in the yoop! What the?!? I’ve been going to the UP for 10 years now and have not seen an entire month go by with such little snow during prime time winter.

    Totally agree...however even up by me we still have approx. 18" on the ground and can still ride. The perfect combination of early snow and cold temps has gotten us through the snow drought. Definitely a winter to remember...or forget depending on how you want to look at it.

    Skylar is not knocking the amount of snow depth and/or the quality of the trails in the U.P. as they are excellent. The problem is the lack of fresh snow which sucks for backcountry riding especially when this is usually the best time for heavy lake effect snowfall.

    What Indy said. The trails in the yoop have been awesome! I've been u.p. every weekend, except for two, since Dec 1st. Plenty of snow up there, just missing the fresh stuff, especially with Lake Superior being so ice free for this time of year.

    You could say that. My commute to work every week is 560 miles. Then throw in 510 round trip for the weekend run to the yoop. Lol. I bought my 2012 Chrysler 200 5 years ago with 43k on it, it now has almost 250k on it.

    It should start snowing more now since it thinks its end of December...I would say you will be good to go on a line around north of oconto...south of maybe say oshkosh or fond du lac will probably not get much in the way of snow any more....or very rarely or thin...or short sporadic events....my 2c

    I feel a pattern change to the positive next week! No real reason, just that heading up next Thursday so a pattern change would be ideal if it would start to dump snow Wednesday through Tuesday that would be great.
