I was at Lake Louise this weekend, just got back, and the ice is not off yet. The wind is blowing it around, saw some guys get trapped and it took them an hour to get back in chopping through with the anchor. You can get out a ways, but risk getting blocked off by floating ice. We got snowed on last night, woke up with 3/4 inch or so on us. We did catch a few though, not that big, maybe 21 inches, not big enough to keep there. Maybe it will be clear in a week or so.
