Ice Conditions Report 1-13-20

We are excited to announce a recent streak of cold temps has the ice forming up quite nicely. Over the weekend reports came in of everything along Sand Point Road is in…..although some of the pillars being quite thin.  Sounds like the Ampitheater and the Dryer Hose both has ascents over the weekend and our six day forecast looks like they will start to grow.  More importantly the back country is looking amazing!  The Michigan Ice Fest Guides did a  guided trip out to Bridalveil Falls and the Rim and both were stellar!
