On January 30th, 2009 we saw our first day above freezing for the winter season 2008-09 when the temperature hit near 40 degrees. We also had high winds with gusts in Detroit Lakes area reported at 50mph. Since we had no days before that to “transform” the snow, the snow was still dry and fluffy. A combination of high winds and the snow sticky at the surface but light enough to form a ball when pushed by the wind, snow rollers formed in a few select open areas. This is a phenomen not seen very often. Photos below taken in Roy’s field which is the field Skaters Waltz extension loops around.
A nice day on Saturday for the ski teams at Maplelag this weekend. More photos on the trails report page.
