I am so disappointed that the winter ice road between Wrigley and Tulit’a is closed! I was supposed to travel from Tulit’a to Yellowknife (a 19+ hour drive) on Sunday, but now that probably wont work out. Bummer. Now I have to fly. 

Posted today (apparently the 72 hr estimate is probably low):

The Mackenzie Valley Winter Road between Wrigley and Tulita is CLOSED due to a severe winter storm.  Repairs are expected to take 72 hours.

The Winter Road between Norman Wells and Fort Good Hope is CLOSED.
