Ice Safety Tips
Many factors affect ice thickness including the type of water, location, and time of year.
Other environmental factors also affect ice thickness such as the size and depth of the body of water; moving water (i.e. currents, drainage, runoff); snow cover; chemicals including salt; fluctuations in water levels; logs, rocks and docks absorbing heat from the sun; changing air temperature and shock waves from vehicles travelling on the ice.
Please check local area signage, authorities and media before going onto the ice. No ice is without risk.
