Default ICE BRIDGE

Seen a few reports that the ice bridge was open. Can anyone tell me if it is or not? Don't want to drive 3-1/2 hrs and find out it's not ready. Thanks for any help. Buck

$5 a sled is what they have charged in the past. Sometimes it is on the honor system!

Treeline is up, people are crossing. I have no idea how much ice, or if it is safe - so please don't ask.

PLEASE DO NOT message or email asking for personal trail reports, or ice conditions. I have never given more info out behind the scenes. The facebook page is supposed to have the trail conditions, and we have never reported on ice conditions - only the fact that a treeline is up or not.

BTW, yes the DNR was stationed on the island last weekend, enforcing the extra $5 /sled rule. Bring cash. Yes they charge you $5 to ride your sled on the island. They instituted the rule 3-4 years ago trying to slow the snowmobile tourist traffic down. (It didn't work)
