Are you saying it was mostly bare ice (or patchwork of bare ice w/drifts)??


Were you on skis or skates?

Picture on Facebook w/ Martin K. looks like Sunapee was all snow covered(but maybe ice was milky looking?) Never seen him use a kite, always using kitewing!

I'd go to Sunapee..where I usually go anyway. Was hoping to use skates over skis. So much lighter on the feet(by about 18-20 pounds!). Use whatever I have to though.


BTW..found cam at Winnipesaukee and looks snow covered there: https://www.winnipesaukee.com/index.php?pageid=weirscam

Snow and freezing rain coming. more surface changes.

not any bare ice.
some refrozen slush.
with powder and some drifts.
skis will be a must.
when are you going?
maybe we meet up.

Trying to figure day with weather, wind and surface all pretty good. Looks like I missed some good recent days.:(


Tomorrow they may get half a foot new snow but then @ night rain/freezing rain.

I don't want breakable crust. :o
