 Lethbridge has four designated skating areas. The ice conditions are checked at least once a week. Ice surfaces will be closed if conditions are unsafe for users. Please keep off closed ice surfaces and all storm ponds. Although the storm pond may look frozen, the ice maybe not be safe. Water levels can fluctuate, causing air pockets under the ice.

Ice measurements will not be taken if there is open water anywhere on the pond or lake.

Be Safe

Your safety is our concern, but your responsibilty.  The strength and stability of ice can change depending on temperature, precipitation, wind and sunshine.

Unique weather variables such as Chinook winds that can bring above freezing air temperature can cause ice to lost strength and stability. These warmer temperatures can affect the melting rate for ice along the shore and near bridges which can lead to open water.
