The new snow makes for great skiing conditions.

SNOWSHOEING would be a great way to explore the park. Snowshoers and hikers should remember to stay off the groomed ski trails. Snowshoes are available for rent at the Park Office. For more information call 218-365-7229.

Base: 8"
Snow Depth in Woods: 20"

I CAN ICE FISH PROGRAM- SATURDAY FEBRUARY 19 FROM NOON- 3 P.M.: Be sure to pre-register for the I CAN ICE FISH program by Thursday February 17. I CAN ICE FISH is a family friendly basic ice fishing program in which each participant makes a jiggle stick to take home and tries his/her hand at ice fishing on Bear Head Lake. There is no fee for attending this program. Vehicles must have a vehicle permit. For more information call: 218-365-7229.

OTHER NOTES: On February 9 a northern shrike was spotted near the park office. Also a hoary redpoll has been seen regularly at the park bird feeder. A grey wolf was seen on the park road on Monday, January 11 near dusk. It is common after every fresh snow to find fresh wolf tracks on park road. Keep an eye open for wildlife while traversing the backwoods. Deer, ruffed grouse and fox are commonly spotted.

Snow Depth on Trails: 6"

Park trails were groomed on March 9, with good results. We received 2" of snow, which has helped grooming conditions after thaw/freezing conditions. Some areas under pine cover may be rough and uneven.

I have been to Boundary Waters Canoe Area as a child and I have some good memories there. I am thinking of visiting here this December with family. When is the ski-season starting here this year? Is it already open? Thank you

Downhill skiing is open at Lutsen. Cross country depends on snow depth. Keep an eye on www.trailconditions.tk and here on the board.
