Seward Ranger District-November 14, 2018

Good Evening to everyone. 

I decided to send an early trail condition report as it looks like tomorrow may be another pleasant day on Seward Ranger District before the rain/snow move in. Tern Lake ice this afternoon measured 5” and is quite smooth, not that I want you to go skating or anything like that, but if you like getting out on smooth ice and have the time before the next storm moves in…… Read the fine print.

Trails are quite slick and slippery, ice cleats and studded fat tires are recommended.

As a reminder, this winter season, 2018-2019 Resurrection Pass Trail is closed to motorized use.

Please keep in mind that ice thickness may vary drastically on each body of water depending on location, just because I give ice thickness reports on frozen bodies of water does not mean ice travel is safe. There are many factors in determining where, how, when, and if you should travel on ice.
