A group of us went up to the range on March 23, 2019 as the weather had been unseasonably warm and we had great hopes for a VERRRY early start. While the woods were bare in most places, the roads were still covered in ice. We figured about two weeks. And then the snow started on April 4 and it went on for three days with below freezing temperatures. We are still hoping for April 13 to set up and April 16 to start. Stand by.
