Ice Update: Rinks CLOSED March 22/23

Hi Summerside!

Hasn’t the weather been beautiful lately? Unfortunately, with the warm temperatures and soft ice
conditions, that means we are officially saying goodbye to skating for the season!
SSRA maintained rinks will be closing at the end of the today, as we are now unable to properly maintain
our rinks to ensure the safety of all users.
Though our most recent ice measurements indicate that the lake ice still remains thick enough for foot
traffic and ice fishing – during this time of year the shoreline can retract quickly and the ice thickness
can fluctuate rapidly, and vary from location to location on the lake. Therefore, we are changing our
flags to YELLOW.
As indicated in the information about our new flag system, which can be found on our website, yellow
flags mean the following: Potential elevated risk of using the lake. The lake is open, but please check the
SSRA website prior to use for details regarding increased risk, and exercise caution and discretion prior
to and/or during use.
If you choose to use the lake at this time, please be sure to exercise extreme caution and judgement at
all times. Look out for any large cracks and water on the ice. If you see water seeping, please leave the
ice and inform our staff immediately.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Office at 780-497-7558 or the Gatehouse at 780-
