Boundary Waters Ice Out Update -- Not Yet
ICE OUT UPDATE: Currently although we have a favorably warm forecast for the rest of the week with possible thundershowers tomorrow there is still 20" to 24" of ice on most of the lakes of any size. Portages in the woods have a foot of snow on many that have tree cover. Ice is beginning to pull away from the edges of the lakes. As the week goes on we will keep you updated. AS OF TUESDAY MORNING, THE FOREST SERVICE HASN'T DONE ANY FLY OVERS TO CHECK OUT THE ICE BUT THEY ARE LIKELY TO IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. If we get any first hand knowledge of openings, rivers, etc. WE WILL POST AS SOON AS WE KNOW ANYTHING.
I'm the Marketing Director, Catalog Director and Webmaster at Piragis Northwoods Company and the Boundary Waters Catalog here in Ely, Minnesota on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. We specialize in lightweight canoes and camping gear and have been serving our community and the worldwide community of paddlers since 1979. We know our stuff because we get out there and paddle. We are passionate about canoeing and wilderness.
