Recent colder temps have helped with ice formation however, flowing water at the outlet to Sarah Creek is creating unsafe ice conditions on the northwest corner of lake Sarah where the snowmobile trail leaves the lake.
AVOID THIS AREA ENTIRELY!
2 SNOWMOBILES WERE SUBMERGED NEAR THE WEIR BUT HAVE SINCE BEEN REMOVED. ADDITIONAL WARNING SIGNS HAVE BEEN PLACED IN THE OUTLET AREA BY THE HENNEPIN COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT.
