Abraham Lake Ice Conditions – November 15 2022


Preacher’s Point is now frozen but we need some wind to clear the snow off the ice.

Winter came in fast after a warm fall. The Preacher’s Point area froze on November 2nd and we’re now finding 18+ cm thick ice throughout that area.

As usual, shore access and the section near the point downstream from the parking lot are the riskiest at this time of the year.

The ice is currently snow-covered with some ice bubbles visible as you venture out a little further. There’s still too much snow for skating however.

When will the rest of the lake freeze? It depends on temperatures but we usually see ice form on the entire lake in the second half of December.

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

The only section of the lake with ice is Preacher’s Point.
