New Ruling Classifies Minnesota Wolves As Threatened

Fri, 12/19/2014 - 7:46pm

According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, effective immediately, Minnesotans can no longer legally kill a wolf except in the defense of human life.

A federal judge’s decision to immediately reinstate Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and
Michigan place the animals under protection of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Wolves now revert to the federal protection status they had prior to being removed from the endangered species list in the Great Lakes
region in January 2012. That means wolves now are federally classified as threatened in Minnesota and endangered elsewhere in the Great Lakes region.

Only agents of the government are authorized to take wolves if depredation occurs.

Central Gunflint Ski Trail Report

New Snowfall: 
11" in last 7 days
Last Grooming Date: 
Dec 18, 2014

It is time! With much enthusiasm, we are delighted to publish the Central Gunflint Ski System’s first ski trail report for the 2014-15 ski season! The snowstorm on December 16th and 17th dropped approximately 11 inches of snow in our area and gave us an opportunity to get a huge jumpstart on grooming after about a month packing in a trail base. The majority of the ski trails are groomed and set with either double classic tracks or with a classic track and skate lane. Summer Home Road, Campground Loop, Deer Mouse, and Red Pines particularly are in excellent shape, providing great conditions normally not seen this early in the season. There are still a couple trails that, due to the rocky terrain they traverse, are snowmobile packed only. With a bit more snow, these will ready to be groomed shortly.

With more snow in the forecast for this week, trail conditions can change daily. Please contact Bearskin Lodge (1-800-338-4170) or Golden Eagle Lodge (1-800-346-2203) for the most up to date conditions and grooming information on each trail or route. Central Gunflint Ski Pass Required.
