It’s Ice Tweener Time So Be Cautious

It’s Ice Tweener Time–the days-to-weeks transition period between open water and solid freeze. Be extra cautious of unsafe conditions around Lake Minnetonka. While people are already recreating on the ice, be aware there are still areas of open water and thin ice.

If the ice is under 4 inches, stay off! The following graphic shows the minimum recommended ice depths for various ice activities on new clear ice. Double the depth if it is white ice. Visit the MN DNR link to learn ways to check ice conditions.
