The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office has closed motor vehicle access to Lake Minnetonka at Wayzata Beach until further notice due to a dangerous pressure ridge that makes it unsafe for vehicles to access the lake at that location.

A release said many areas of near-open water around the ridge are now covered with snow. An alternative access onto Wayzata Bay exists at Arlington Circle, near the Wayzata Beach Club.

According to the release, pedestrians and participants in Saturday's Chilly Open will be able to access the lake at Wayzata Beach by walking on a specific, marked path around the pressure ridge.
