With the big blizzard this past weekend and sub zero temperatures predicted for the next week ice conditions at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore remain amazing! Sunday we skied out to Miners Falls in sunny but cold conditions. With the blowing and drifting Saturday if you are venturing out into the backcountry skis or snowshoes are a must!
Lake ice remains in place and opportunities to climb on Grand Island still exist. The crossing at Sand Point is still dangerous so if you have plans to go out please use the Grand Island public access.
If you are planning on coming up next weekend it will be cold but the climbing should be spectacular! Dress warm and remember those snowshoes if you are going into the backcountry.
