Some sunshine to start the weekend. The Friday snow storm has moved out, replaced by a typical mix of sunshine and periods of flurries or snow squalls. This area got a couple more inches of snow out of the recent storm. The temperature is staying well below freezing, even in the afternoons. The last of the open water on the lake disappeared on Wednesday. This is the earliest for a complete freeze over in several years. Looks like Santa will have no problem sleigh riding this Christmas.
Lake trout season opens on January 1.
The snowmobile trail conditions map on this website is now being updated for the 2017-18 winter season. All trails are still closed. Please do not ride on closed trails.
