The ice is clearing up after a snowy holiday season
Based on ice conditions checks on January 1, 2022
Lots of clear ice and great bubbles in the Ice Bubbles parking lot and Abraham Slabs areas.
The cold temperatures have meant great ice conditions with thick ice in all the areas we've checked. The snow and calm days we had over the holidays made for snow-covered ice. There were great pockets of ice bubbles to be found but with the stronger winds this weekend we're finally seeing most of the lake clearing up.
As always, the highest risks on Abraham Lake are on the rocky shoreline as you approach the lake and while standing on the ice near the shore. Make sure to brush off on your ice safety skills before you head out.
Where to Go
Preacher's Point has been snow-covered and the ice isn't great there this year. Cline Landing had some bubbles for those willing to explore a little further but the bay itself was snow-covered.
Belly of Abraham + Abraham Slabs and the new Ice Bubbles parking lot are the best options right now.
Pictures from this Week
We share this information to help visitors to the area plan their trip. This represents the conditions we have observed at a specific point in time. Ice safety depends on many more factors than just ice conditions and anybody going on the ice should have the knowledge and experience required to assess the risks, or should consider going with a guide.
