International Falls, MN: Please remember to think twice this time of year when getting onto frozen water surfaces - when in doubt, stay off the ice. For more information on general ice thickness safety guidelines, please visit the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/ice/thickness.html.
Due to the lack of safe load-bearing ice at this time, all park snowmobile and ski trails are closed.
Park staff have started checking ice conditions and found there is not significant ice yet to start staking trails.
This winter season, the most up-to-date information regarding Voyageurs’ ice and trail conditions will be posted each Wednesday to the park’s Facebook page (VoyageursNPS) and on the park’s website at http://www.nps.gov/voya/planyourvisit/winter-ice-and-trail-conditions.htm.
Future winter ice and trail condition press releases will be issued only during major changes in trail conditions.
