The snow is here and the sun is shining too! The only kink in this perfect picture is the wind that is still blowing creating snow drifts and a wind chill factor below zero. Although it is difficult to obtain an exact measurement of the latest snowfall, we feel that we received at least 12 inches here at camp.

Finally the snow has arrived so let the sledding begin!

Like most of the eastern seaboard, the Christmas blizzard has arrived at Bosebuck Mountain Camps. With the high winds, it's difficult to to accurately measure accumulation, but so far we have received at least 8 inches on the ground. The groomer from Rangeley made a round trip yesterday in advance of the snow to condition the trail so now that the snow has arrived, we should be in great shape. Come an enjoy the great outdoors.

The first full day of winter and it's snowing here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps. The snow flakes are almost microscopic in size however and not really amounting to any accumulation. We are keeping an eye out to the north, northwest waiting for the arrival of the backlash of the storm off the east coast. If this one doesn't arrive, another is in the forecast for early next week. We do not have enough snow on the ground yet to groom, but keep your chin up, it's coming.

For those of you heading into camp, please remember that there are active logging operations north of us and you will meet truck traffic coming & going on Parmachenee Road.

Yes, it's snowing at Bosebuck Mountain Camps and has every day since that horrendous rain storm came through Sunday night. Although our snow total indicates 1 foot 11 inches, in reality we have just about 6 inches on the ground this morning. Our snow total chart tracks total snow as it is received and does not not take into account any melting or loss.

Yes, you can ride the Maine trails since it is after the 15th however the groomers will not be out until we have more snow on the ground. The Pittsburgh area hopes to open some trails today too.

Yesterday morning at this time it was 50 degrees and raining but thankfully the temperature fell throughout the day and as night approached the rain turned to snow. We awoke this morning to a white landscape again having received just over an inch of crusty snow overnight. Unfortunately, we did loose all that had been on the ground. The good news is, is that it should remain cold all week and we are expecting snow showers everyday.

We had light snow falling for the entire day yesterday with an accumulation of just over an inch. That trend has continued today and we have our fingers crossed that the rain forecast will not reach this far north. However, if it does, we should have enough snow on the ground to absorb it and make a solid base for the trails.

Cold and snowy. Yes, it was only 4 degrees at 7AM at Bosebuck Mountain Camps this morning. The good news is, we have about 8 inches of snow on the ground here at camp with higher amounts at elevation.

We have received a number of calls regarding trails and conditions for this weekend, so I will remind everyone again - NO sledding on property managed by Wagner until December 15th. That goes for trails and back-country. We will be open on the 15th for lunch so be patient and wait just a few more days. Take this time to finish up your Christmas shopping, ready your sled and pack up your gear.

I was sad because that horrendous wind & rain storm that blew through a couple days ago took most of our snow, but I'm glad now because this current weather pattern has already dropped about 3 inches of fresh snow with up to another 6 possible by the end of the day tomorrow.

Mike did finish the new snowmobile trail into Bosebuck this week and some of the club members were out installing a bridge yesterday so it should be good to go for the 15th if there is enough snow on the ground. We do now and will have active logging operations this winter north of camp, but with the new trail operating you will not be sharing with log trucks. Thanks to Wagner for relocating the trail!
