Re: Mille Lacs Crossing - best snow year ever???

I'd like to try next year.

Re: Metro area ice reports

Having some fun on Pulaski yesterday (Near Buffalo, MN) with Jerry Sandell on Freeskate. There's a good size duck hole a few hundred meters out straight N from the public access on the SW corner. All my samples were 6-7 inches black ice. Link to Video: http://downhaul.com/kites/181220pulaskiOpener/p...
