Ice Update March 24, 2022

Hi Summerside!

We have been having some beautiful sunny days and we hope you’ve been enjoying them! Unfortunately, with the continued warm temperatures, we are officially saying goodbye to the ice for the winter season and lake ice access is now closed! 

The lake shore has begun retracting and thus created thin ice conditions. This has made access to the lake unsafe. Shore retraction is an initial sign of ice deterioration throughout the lake and compromises our ability to ensure safe thicknesses. Therefore, we are changing our flags to RED 🚩

As indicated in the information about our new flag system, which can be found on our website, red flags mean the following:

Known increased risk of using the lake. Lake access is PROHIBITED for ALL USERS.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call our office at 780-497-7558 or the gatehouse at 780-756-6772.
