Updated: January 20, 2017
The Rainy Lake Ice Road has temporarily been CLOSED due to temperatures being over freezing for over a 24 hour time period. Travel by truck/car is not advised at this time. Ice road conditions will be re-evaluated once the temperatures fall below freezing again.
All snowmobile trails are open and staked.
Park crews are grooming along the lake surfaces but focusing primarily on the portages of all the trails, excluding the Purple trail at this time. The Purple Trail and its portages will be groomed as crews and groomers become available.
Please continue to be on the look-out for slush, especially if traveling off-trail.
Ski trails are packed, and tracked. Snowshoe trails are open, but not packed.
Please check back, or like our Facebook page for the most up-to-date conditions. Thank-you.
