Snow on the ground?

5 posts in this topic

We have lake property close to Battle Lake which we have not been up to this winter. Going to be making a trip up this weekend. Was wondering how much snow is on the ground? I want to if I need to bring my snowblower up so we can get up the driveway? I have truck so I can make it through some snow.

Also, how much snow is on the area lakes right now? Will I be good with a wheeler or do I need a snowmobile?

Thanks,

Not much, maybe 6-8" in the woods. We've had some warm spells that melted a lot of the snow and re-froze. If your driveway is prone to having any windblown snowdrifts you may need attention to that, otherwise a 4x4 truck should be able to go thru what is on the ground.

Definitely an ATV on the lakes. The snow is like concrete on the lakes and it's not snowmobile friendly. Not much snow on the lakes I've been on.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
