Ice conditions

Well I walked out today from cattle landing. The lake is puddled with areas of slush. All that is going to freeze overnight making running on snowmobiled less than ideal. The wind really kicked up...

Snow cover on the lake?

Any snow cover or has the recent warm temps melted it off again? Trying to figure out whether I can run my sleds on the lake this weekend. Suspect not.

Rain rain go away

Am I right to assume todayís warm temps and rain washed away the snow on the ice, rendering it unpassable by snowmobile? Please advise. TIA

Pressure ridge between Mink and Camp Island

Now that itís buried in the snow, you might miss this one. If was quite wet yesterday and fairly wide. A lot of ice had sagged below the surface. A couple of 4-wheelers thought better of trying to...

Black Ice perhaps?

It that area was open during the prior snow storm but locked in after, it could give the impression of open water. Would be very odd for that to still be open water after all the cold of the past...
