I have been in communication

I have been in communication with Chris Krug who checked ossippee, silver, etc yesterday. The slush is intense. He thinks Squam might be better, he writes:

unless you have fat skis it's not going to be good unless you hike way the hell out. The water is coming over the edge ice and flooding out about 300' or more in some places. The slush situation is a little out of hand. About 7-10" of slush with 7" of whipped cream on top. Almost makes me want to ride the potato fields over the border. All the local lakes are a mess. Silver, Choco, Ossi, Melvin all serious slush fest. Silver was a shit mess. I think Squam is good as the report yesterday was no slush. Wish I had a better report.

It may drain a bit before Saturday, but there's going to be slush until the snow is gone.

Winds are NNW and Squam sucks in NNW. (or any kind of north anything) But like I said it's relatively dry under the snow so it may be the best game in town. I gotta say I'm considering moving my lessons north of the Notches tomorrow or to Long Lake over in Maine at this point. I'm willing to suffer through the slush but I don't want to subject clients to it if I can avoid it.

If you do go to Squam the best bet for the best wind will be at the west side launch off RT.3 heading north just before you hit Holderness. It's the scenic pull off. You can see Perch and Potatoe Island from it. It's mostly out of the wind shadow of the Sandwich range and will allow you to get all the way down into Dog Cove and around Great Island to the SE and to Holderness NW. Watch for thin ice near the inlet.

Slush like this is hard to gauge sometimes. We may get lucky and some of it may drain off as the snow compacts and/or evaporates. We've seen it do crazy things. It's warm as hell right now. It's raining in Littleton right now for crying out loud. We'll have to wait and see. This weather is going to hang in there for the next 5-6 days.
