It is weird - we can't get anyone in the east or west gate office to find out any information about conditions and our reservation info - the only number supplied says the office is open for business only m-f 9-4.


Anyone know what the conditions are in the area? Is there enough snow for s'shoeing, or are we hiking? Can you skate on the lakes yet (or is the Mew Lake lot a skating rink yet?). Can you pick up a yurt key at both East and West Gate?

Any info appreciated.

Sunrise surprise! We just got a call from Mew Lake - I assume it was the hosts... there is a foot of snow, the ice rink is in the parking lot, the lake is solid, and yes, you can check in from either gate. If you are taking a yurt (one of our party is), they will have it open by 3 p.m., and the key inside.

Might appreciate that yurt. Lady that called said that daytime temp is -8 to -16C and night time lows of -16 to -22.

Sorry I missed your post. We're here now. Conditions are great for everything. We're in the Snowtrekker on site 83.

Just got back - What fabulous weather we had! We saw you folks set up, but did not see you in camp. Had no internet with us, so did not know if you were from here or not but suspected it - you had a great set up (and the lights added to it as well).

The skating was fantastic, and the night sky amazing (although was glad it clouded over and warmed us up some on Tues and Wed. nights!). The people in the big military tent by the comfort station froze the first night - too big of a tent, and too little heat (everything had been mail ordered, and it was their first time out with the 4 kids). They were better after a trip to Huntsville for another plug in furnace, and more food for the microwave!

Glad you havd a great time. We may have just been in the tent sipping coffee. We did do some hiking inthe day but usually there at night. The day we were packing up some guys set up beside us. They had two Snowtrekkers and an older Woods Prospector tent. Wished we could have stayed a few more days.
I guess the Military tent arrived after we headed home.
