This will be the last biathlon event of the 2016 2017 season. While it is possible we will be able to pull off a race at Elk River on the 5th of March, currently the trails are totally closed so it would take substantial new snow to allow it to happen.
Mount Itasca still looks really good per pictures on Skinnyski this am.
