Default Ice Bridge Updates

When we left the UP on Super Bowl Sunday the ice was frozen all the way across to the island. Looking for updates on if they will have the Christmas tree bridge across anytime soon.

Mike, the club will never endorse crossing to the island as conditions can change in the blink of an eye. The ice in the bay has been locked in but the ice all the way across just formed recently. Word has it a couple islanders crossed the other day but they usually do it far before a tree line is ever put up. If I see a tree bridge is put up I will let you know. I will be up tomorrow.

Hey Mike, check the trail report from 2/08, there's some ice bridge info posted there from another member. Hoping to get up this coming weekend.

The bridge is open and people are crossing. Be sure to check before crossing at anytime. The reports I have seen is between 4" and 12" of ice. I did hear reports about a pressure crack but people were still crossing. The island is charging$5.00 for a permit to ride the island. I heard there is supposed to be a pole by the landing to get the pass. Its on the honor system or you can go to the police station. I haven't heard of anyone gettiing a ticket yet but I'm sure thats coming with the amount of traffic going over there this weekend. Hope this helps everyone.
