Winter is winding down and now is the time to be more vigilant regarding winter safety on the lake. Thanks to the website adirondack.net and publication Your Hometowne, important safety issues regarding ice safety can be found below.
Once ice on Adirondack ponds and lakes is thick enough you can do everything from ice skating to ice fishing, but how do you know when the ice is thick enough? That’s one of the most common questions every winter, because ice is extremely dangerous if it’s too thin or weak. We’ve laid out how to test ice thickness and additional safety tips below.
If you have walked, skied, or snowmobiled through the lake narrows this winter, you might have noticed the life ring and rope that Mike & Theresa Dell’Anno have placed by the lake. Our thanks go out to them for being proactive in trying to prevent a tragedy. We encourage other lake residents to place safety equipment at the waterfront.
