Abraham Lake Ice Conditions – December 27 2022

Home » Abraham Lake Ice Conditions – December 27 2022


The past few days have been very dynamic with temperatures going from -40C to +10C followed by heavy rain. Luckily, the ice conditions are great for the most part.

Yesterday’s rain brought a lot of water on top of the ice in some locations but the winds have helped clear most of it. While we are still finding some pools that are lightly frozen over, the ice below is strong and over 55 cm thick in the areas we checked. As usual, make sure to check conditions for yourself before heading out on the ice.

Preacher’s Point and Cline Landing looked more snow-covered yesterday (we didn’t have time to go on the ice there). The area that can be accessed from the Ice Bubbles Parking Lot was in great shape, especially if you are willing to walk a little further to get away from the crowd.

We’ll see temperatures cool off slightly in the coming days. This is good for the ice but will make roads like the one to Crescent Falls and parking lots icier.

Where to Go

Preacher’s Point and Cline Landing are mostly snow-covered while the area from Abraham Slabs to the Ice Bubbles Parking Lot is mostly in great shape. The rain has pooled in some locations leaving those areas cloudy but we are finding some great patches throughout.
