Abraham Lake Ice Conditions – December 4 2020

Home » Abraham Lake Ice Conditions – December 4 2020

Great ice bubbles but variable ice

Recent warm temperatures lead to variable ice conditions. Use extra caution or stay on the ice that is on the ground.

We had a great start to the season with good ice conditions at Preacher’s Point as early as October 30 this year. Unfortunately, the warm weather we’re currently experiencing is making things more challenging.

At this point, the only section of the lake that is frozen is Preacher’s Point at the south end of the lake, where the North Saskatchewan River enters Abraham Lake. The rest of the lake does not usually freeze until mid to late December.

The ice near the main access at Preacher’s Point is mostly sitting on the ground now as a result of the lake level dropping around 75 cm per week for the past month.

We have been finding variable ice over the main river channel but for the most part we saw over 22 cm of clear ice. Areas near the point had open water and very weak ice near the shore.
