Abraham Lake Ice Conditions

Our Latest Observations

We're sharing updates on the ice conditions at Abraham Lake to help you plan your adventure. Keep in mind that conditions change quickly.

This represents the conditions we have observed at a specific point in time. We do not test the ice for public safety and you should only use the information we provide as a starting when making your decisions.

Ice safety depends on many more factors than the ice conditions alone and anybody going on the ice should have the knowledge and experience required to assess the risks, or should consider going with a guide.

We update the information as we have time, based on the reports we get from our local guides and partners. We do not have the resources to post updates daily nor to provide updates on-demand. 

Guided tours are available if you're looking for more information than what we can offer here, including about ice safety and the best locations to see the ice bubbles.
