Ice Damage Around Skaha Lake - Log:03182014 UPDATED 3/27/2014




UPDATE: 3/27/2014 Lumber remains along the shoreline

Lumber scattered along the shoreline of Skaha Lake. In February 2014 Skaha Lake froze over and many docks were destroyed. The lumber is floating around on the lake waiting for a powerboat to collide with them, some of the lumber has made its way to the shore. Homeowners of the damaged docks have not taken the initiative to clean up their lumber as of yet. Most all the lumber is pressure treated and will not rot. Here are some photos of what has washed up on the rocky shores of the South East side of the lake.

IcePassage Skaha Lake KayakLog:02 20 2014

"Ice Passage" Skaha Lake KayakLog:02 20 2014

Portions of Skaha Lake are clear enough for kayaking today. Some portions of the lake have thin sheets and some of ice from 2 to 3 inches thick.

There are little passage ways through the large sheets of ice, some large enough to paddle through.

I have provided a YouTube video below for your enjoyment.

Beautiful afternoon for a paddle after about 2 and a half weeks of a frozen over lake.

Skaha Lake FROZEN OVER no kayaking today!

FROZEN OVER: Skaha Lake Panorama photo. 2/7/2014

 I am still finding it hard to believe that Skaha Lake is frozen over. This is one for the history books. This shot taken on February 7th 2014

The lake started freezing about 2 days ago today it is frozen over and with about 3.5 inches of fresh snow on the lake now. Here are some shots from yesterday before the snow. "Glass Ice" can be found near the river channel entrance to the lake.
