How Thick Should The Ice Be?
 
Be safe!  Follow guidelines. Ice strength is based on several factors. Below is a recommended ice thickness. See more details at the MN Department of Natural Resources.

White ice or "snow ice" is only about half as strong as new clear ice. Double the above thickness guidelines when traveling on white ice.
 
Ice Thickness
 
Contact your local bait shop or lake resort to ask about ice conditions.

Temperature, snow cover, currents, springs and rough fish all affect the relative safety of ice. Ice is seldom the same thickness over a single body of water. It can be two feet thick in one place and one inch thick a few yards away.
Check the ice at least every 150 feet.
 
Park vehicles at least 50 feet apart, and move every two hours. See more details at the MN Dept of Natural Resources.
