Abraham Lake Ice Conditions – December 21 2021

A FANTASTIC START OF THE SEASON

Lots of clear ice and great bubbles in the Ice Bubbles parking lot and Abraham Slabs areas.

The ice continues to thicken, hitting 22 cm in most areas checked today. We’ll see what the snow in the forecast for later this week brings but so far we’re off to a great start of the season.

The forecast is looking on the colder side for the holidays, make sure to plan accordingly. Colder days usually mean that the water level drops faster. We’ve seen a 70 cm drop on the lake since Saturday, leaving ice on shore already.

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.

Abraham Slabs and the new Ice Bubbles parking lot are the best options right now.
