Hurry up and wait
That about sums up the current conditions for recreation. Ice is forming on Rainy Lake, and some ice anglers are venturing out on the bays. Always put safety first and check the ice frequently. Lowlands are freezing over and snowmobile trail groomers are waiting for a sufficient amount of snow to groom. You can tell some cross country skiers have been out to hit the trails, but they are still a bit rough.
The way the weather looks, predictions are that we will get a good base of lake ice before we see enough snow for good sledding and that's good news. The question is when. We will keep you posted.
