I was up there two weekends ago and there was very minimal snow cover around long point. Should have no problem with a wheeler I would think. I saw a truck drive out to 3 mile reef. I don't believe that there has been much additional snow since then and if there was it likely just blew off the lake as it was pretty windy the couple times it has snowed.

The ice is closer to 40" in most places I would say. The k drill only had a couple inches of travel left before I would have needed an extension and I was on bare ice. Again, that was 2 weekends ago so I would expect it to be slightly thicker by now.

Dont have any current data from myself but I often watch the videos that Curt Quesnel puts on his facebook page. His video from 30 January talks about roads and conditions all over the place. Check it out.

Just got home from up there. I can tell with just a pickup I think you can go almost anywhere. With a wheel house its a bit touch and go if you want to get off the beaten path. The problem is the drifts are so hard as soon as you bust thru them its pure powder underneath. Also any where there has been any kind of path or house there drifted in twice as deep now. With a little finesse and heads up driving and a good shovel you should be ok.

Just got back and they just had about 6" of new fluffy snow. We we're at the NW Angle and there was no way you were going off the ice road without a sled. South shore might be different because there's so much traffic but I wouldn't count on it.
