Ice Conditions Report 4-7-13

If your thinking the ice season might be over…think again!  We headed out to Munising on Sunday and found excellent conditions .  Hard to believe but the lake ice is still in- including ice to ski to Grand Island.  We strapped on the skis and decided to go check out the conditions along the lakeshore.  It has be awhile since we have seen this good of conditions this late in the year.

While seeps are in excellent conditions the true waterfall are becoming just that…..a waterfall.  Most pillars that are tucked away out of the sunlight (not that there has been any sunlight) are still fat.  The warmer temperature have made the ice “plasticy” and just like Colorado ice- easy to climb!

 

Our guess is that we have several more weeks of ice season left and our hoping to beat our all time record of May 6th as an ending date.  Will keep everyone posted- so don’t store that gear yet and come up for some last climbs of the year!
