After an additional 10 cm of snowfall yesterday and the coldest night of the season predicted this evening (-26 C with wind chill of -34! Brrrr), I think it is safe to say that we are getting firmly back on the winter track.
Speaking of tracks, our friends at the West Gate just phoned in with this good news: the Fen Lake Ski Trail is groomed and track set. It's looking good for cross-country skiing in Algonquin Park! The cold conditions tonight will set up the tracks nicely and the trails should be in great shape this weekend. More snow and more seasonal temperatures are in the forecast for later this week. The park's day hiking trails should be in fine condition for snowshoeing as well.
If you are heading up north without skis or snowshoes, drop in to our Oxtongue Lake store and check out the great selection we have for sale and for rent!
