Merry Christmas

Christmas Morning at Bosebuck Mountain Camps

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Well, with the thermometer reading 3 degrees this morning, we are all set for a white Christmas here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps.  We did receive another 4 inches of snow yesterday, but with the previous rain on Wednesday, the amount on the ground is still not sufficient to ride.  It will be a quiet day, but do not despair, the snow and cold temps are here to stay and I anticipate trails will open as soon as it is safe to do so.  Keep checking back with me and the Rangeley Lakes Snowmobile Club Trail conditions at and Merry Christmas!

Yes, we have snow on the ground (about 4-5 inches).  Yes, it's cold (5 below zero this morning).  Yes, the rivers have frozen over and even this end of the lake (for the third time this season already).  That's the good news.  The not so good news..., not enough snow yet, so the trails are NOT open.  We have had light snow flurries for the past couple days and it appears the weather pattern is finally turning to winter.  I'll keep you posted on conditions.

It's finally beginning to look like winter here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps.  We now have measurable snowfall and I was able to start the 2011/2012 snowfall total chart.  Although we won't be sledding this weekend, (YES, we have received several calls already inquiring about sledding conditions) we have 6 inches of snow on the ground, temps below freezing and light snow falling.

Don't forget that a Bosebuck Gift Certificate is available in any dollar amount and can be emailed or sent regular mail and still received prior to Christmas.  You know it's the right size and won't end up the "gifts to return" pile.

The calendar is telling me that it's December 6th but the thermometer is reading 38 degrees and it's raining.  So we have no snow, no ice and no leaves on the trees.  Bad news for sledding, but great news for the late season bird hunters.  We have almost perfect conditions for grouse hunting right now, with plenty of birds and cabins available.  Don't hang up that shotgun just yet.

It doesn't take long for the lake to freeze and I have seen it catch overnight.  The extended forecast is calling for much colder temps with snow showers coming in on Thursday through the weekend.  Although we won't be sledding this weekend, cross your fingers and do your snow dance.

I also wanted to share this photo of Rob, one of our many repeat deer hunters, with his successful harvest of a nice 4-pointer.  Congrats and see you next year.
