1/10/20 From ASP All areas south of Nancy Lake Parkway are open for snowmachines.
Extreme cold!! The area has experienced the deep and sustained cold much like most of the State. Temperatures low as -33 were recorded and highs in the -20s and -teens. Ice thickness has grown but all inlets/outlets and normal flowing waters should still be approached with caution. Snow pack is still relatively low for the norm and specific areas are not filled in all the way.
