Ice Reports 2014/2015
« on: January 21, 2015, 10:56:16 am »
If you have an ice report or would like to warn the members of troubled areas please post it here. As the season progresses we would like to include information such as ice travel conditions for snowmobiles and ATV's

I spend 250 days a year on the water and I still feel I'm missing Time on the Water.

We saw a snowmobile in the distance go through a crack at BBP on Sunday when we were walking back in.

Be careful out there, or walk.  It's not worth losing a machine and polluting the lake in the process.

Port Bolster had 10 - 12 inches of ice yesterday, Jan. 23.    Drove out on the quad.    Travel was slippery as I didn't have my chains on... installing them today.

The north end of Simcoe from Carthew Bay south has many bad pressure cracks, the worst I have every seen. The areas in front of Strawberry Island out 5km is a mess of cracks and broken ice. It is not safe for ATV's and sledders should use extreme caution.

Hi John, any word if there has been any improvement in conditions out there as the week moves on? Hopefully the warm up tomorrow (-2 forecast) doesn't open things back up.  Looks like back to snow and cold for the weekend.

We need some snow. The cracks looked tame today.
