Ice around Kingston


Any word on ice conditions around Kingston? I'd imagine the ice north of elevator bay would still be sketchy? The snowfall earlier this week had water seeping through. What about colonel bye lake?

If no one confirms safe ice by 7am, you'll find me in Westport!

Re: Ice around Kingston


I was out in elevator bay today (south of King St between Dupont Plant, condo breakwall and rock breakwall to the south. I put in about 6-7 bore holes in an x pattern across entire bay with a 6 " ice screw. Only hit water twice at about 4 inches. Ideally need about 2" min on skis... so thought it pretty good and decided to fly by 8.5 Concept Air SmartKite from for a while. Would not venture much further out on Ontario though until we get another week of cold I say.

 The SE winds forecast today were too light in the great deep powder. Needed a 12 Kite I think. Nice to be out in the sunshine thought all afternoon. SmartKite

I saw someone else flying a blue kite on north elevator bay (north of King St) mid afternoon.

Re: Ice around Kingston


I just came in. Got all set up, skis on, 4.9 Flexifoil Blade rocketing skyward in 20 knot winds.... and I go nowhere! It was like my skis were welded to the snow. Too deep and wet. Before going out, better check the wax on your board and/or skis is good for this wet snow. I'm on my way out to pick some up now. Hopefully I'll get another shot at it after lunch.

Probably not today, but likely tomorrow. I'm up in Westport. I'm sure others will be there though - great wind. I just sprayed some glide wax on my skis... hopefully that will work.

Re: Ice around Kingston


I used to have a 3 as well and a 5 m but sold them all. Late Tuesday pm may be the best (lake will have time solidify and winds may not be so gusty... or later in week - Thursday or Friday.

I will come up to Westport too sometime soon and try that... Big Rideau lake is sweet. I've only ventured out from Portland and it was fantastic.

Re: Ice around Kingston


Let me know if you head out to the bay this week and I will come join! If you head up to Westport in the near future and would like someone to split gas with I'm always up for the trip.

Cheers,

Ira
