Not that it's of any help to you but don't bother heading over to the Marshfield/Wausau area. We're in the same boat. I tried last Saturday and ended up playing 1 hole at Braem park. Almost lost a Buzzz about 6 inches under the snow but finished out the hole by parking it under the cage. The disc came to rest touching the underside of the cage. Spring can't come soon enough.

Thanks for posting this. I had no idea snow cover maps were a thing! This is my first winter ever living in a place with real snow, so I wish I had known about this earlier in the season.

I'm hoping Rockford or Delwood is basically snow free by next weekend. A lot closer drives for me from Madison, though.

I go through the same thing every year! This year has been worse than most. I have found myself thinking (more than once) "well 6.5 hour drive and one night in a hotel for a weekend of snow free DG isn't too bad" That snow coverage map is sweet! I will start using it for sure.

I live in Omaha so I feel your pain. I started disc golfing in October 2017, and loved it last winter because it gave me an activity that I could still do outside during the cold months. This winter though...man, it's been rough. The game just isn't very fun when you're throwing from snow up to your knees and spending more time looking for discs than throwing them.

It's supposed to snow like 8" more by Saturday, right? Better get your DG in while there's less than 2 ft of snow on the ground!

I've been coming home to southern MS the last 10 winters, so I've seen naught but a dusting of snow. My nearest course, however, does have 3-4 inches of standing water everywhere on it, though. #discgolfswim

I would take the frozen ground or snow over this past weekend quagmire of mud from the rain melted snow we had to deal with.

Luckily no shoes where lost in this adventure.

Yeah, I'm not looking forward to the spring (mud) season that is quickly approaching. I'm enjoying the frozen ground we have for now.
