Cracked ice, Patricia Lake

Getting that itch to skate?

This was Patri­cia Lake on Mon­day 5th of Decem­ber. The ice is about 1/2 inch (1.27cm) thick and was checked sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly by our @alpineart guy of @jasperweddings trans­port ser­vice.  After step­ping on to the ice, need­less to say, it was not thick enough to sup­port any weight just yet.

The lake looks hope­ful for the end of this week, the nights are drop­ping to the minus 20 range, and if the snow holds off, the ice will be very smooth.

This is a warn­ing to those who want to explore areas that are not ready for any activ­i­ties on lakes. The crack shot off across the lake in mere sec­onds when the ice broke through along the bank.
