Here's an updated video today, 1/26/16 showing why we continue to discourage driving vehicles on Lake Waconia. We are comfortable using ATV's and snowmobiles.
*Just to clarify, the video today is showing just one of many areas on the lake you can find snow impacting the ice thickness. While there are numerous areas of mixed ice (frozen slush with clear ice) measuring 10 to 16 inches, you will also find scattered locations where the snow is hindering ice growth, with ice thicknesses between 7 to 8 inches. We are just as discouraged, if not more so, than most of you, as our business thrives with thicker ice, but we are being as forthcoming as we can to keep people safe.
