The first weekend in march the mid-Gunflint area where Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B is located, along with most of the rest of the state, received this winter’s biggest snow fall to date- ten to twelve inches. Then yesterday another four inches of snow was received. The measured total snow on the ground is currently twenty two inches. It is finally beginning to look like winter. However still a far cry from a normal winter when we would have more then three feet of snow on the ground by this time of year.
With this new snow the ski trails are all in great shape. The Banadad Ski Trail is in the best condition it has been in all winter.
March compared to last month’s lack luster performance is off to a good start. During the whole month of February only 4.7 inches of snow fall was recorded- in the mid-Gunflint area- the lowest amount for that month since 1998.
