Up in Finland again this weekend at the cabin. Rode the NSST and the local trails Sat and Sun and both were good. The NSST had some corners that were getting exposed on Sat but 99.9% of the trail we rode was good. Local trais were great. Also rode some forest roads and power lines and they were all good. Snow was very soft on Saturday but set up pretty hard on Sunday.

You can see my daughter on the highest rock in the center of the picture. Not sure how she climbed up there but she just slid right down.

Yep, big snow forecast for up there. The Duluth news stations are saying as much as 18&#34; up the shore. I&#39;m hoping for 3 more weekends yet of riding.

Elf - how much new snow did you receive?

I was looking online today and reports are that area received from 6-9&#34;. So not the huge storm I wanted but better than nothing. It was all good snow though, relatively heavy and not real fluffy. Trails and off trail should be great this weekend.
