Locals pitching in to clear snow

Preparing The Ice On The Lake

With cold tem­per­a­tures and low snow fall, the lake ice is now per­fect for skat­ing, at least Patri­cia Lake. A hand­ful of good local samar­i­tans armed with shov­els, they cleared a hock­ey rink and a loop path on the lake.

The tem­per­a­ture might be cold, but it is still great to get out and enjoy the fan­tas­tic views from the lake.  If you want to warm up fast, bring a shov­el and help main­tain and widen the loop! Plen­ty of lake to play on.

Last week, we test­ed the lake and it was thin, this week, it is now good to go! You can even prac­tice your fat bik­ing for the upcom­ing Jasper in Jan­u­ary event. There is snow just enough for grip where it has not been cleared.
