    This new snow really isn't helping. But as cold as its getting it should be thickening up real soon.

    Memory Lake has plenty. I was on it Sunday night (almost a week ago) and it had 5 1/2" of clear ice. Should have a little more by now.

    Hey ya all,

    Any updates on the ice in the Mat-Su? I was thinking about kepper, echo or finger this weekend with the kid and wife. Any info would be great. Thanks.

    Driving on biglake already, if that answers your question. If your exploring new area's though its best to check them out on foot still.

    Long Lake in willow had about 6" on 11/21 and 11/22. Quit a bit of overflow/slush.

    Thought this was worth throwing up here. The video is a little dated but still good safety info.
