Abraham Lake Ice Conditions – April 3 2023

Home » Abraham Lake Ice Conditions – April 3 2023


The lake is currently 100% snow-covered after a series of spring storms. Finding the bubbles will take some work.

It’s April, and this will be the last update of an amazing bubble season.

Spring may be here but Mother Nature hasn’t got the memo yet. As recent series of storms has completely covered the lake in a thick layer of snow, over 15 cm deep in places. The constant variation of temperatures (down to -20 overnight, and above 10 during the day) means the snow is very crusty, making it fairly hard to dig through. It will take some work finding the bubbles until the wind picks up again and blows all of that snow away. For the time being, you will need to dig and scrape in order to find them.

Where to Go

The best spots to find the bubbles and areas of concern are the same as in our last few updates.

As the days get longer and warmer, make sure you are up to date with your ice safety knowledge prior to venturing out on the ice. Stay safe, and enjoy the remainder of the bubble hunting season!
