John Eisenlohr got first tracks for the 2023 ice sailing season on Smith Lake near Kalispell, Montana. John and a friend rigged up their Mini-Skeeters and went out chasing puffs.
So begins the season. Pretty good ice in some spots with some 2” drifts in others. I got a few one way runs right on the edge of sailing. At any rate it was a nice 20 degree sunny day to be outside.
Locally, the forecast for Plymouth is looking hopeful. Many nights below freezing for the next week, with a few days only in the thirties. Let’s keep our eyes on it!
Snow and lakes icing over in the Adirondacks last week.
