Banadad Ski Trail System is accessible from two trail heads, both with free parking; the eastern trail head is located 30 miles up the Gunflint Trail off the Lima Grade; the west end trail head is on the Gunflint Trail at Fire # 10045. In addition to the Banadad the trail system consists of the Lace Lake, Tall Pines and Tim Knapp Trails.

This morning the temperature is hovering at 38 degrees but rain followed by snow is expected by tonight and into tomorrow. The lakes remain ice covered.
The Poplar Creek at the Ski-Snowshoe bridge below the Poplar Creek Guesthouse is still well below flood stage.
If the predicted rain and snow occurs, this bridge will likely be underwater.
