The Northland also does an ice out contest and they called for yesterday, April 13 at 845 AM. Yes this is really early for Ice out.
We can all try again next year.
Today is April 3rd, 2021 and below is the most recent cam shot of Big Wood. You can see the lake has risen with the water is our bottom yard. The grumbling under the ice has started: so I think the ice is getting thinner and water is moving, or Big Woody is getting restless.
That is a snapshot of Big Wood this morning from our webcam. (March 8th)
It is a beautiful sunny but very cold morning here in Jackman. Yesterday was a moving off the ice day for many ice shacks though. Warmer temps are supposed to happen later this week, which is why I assume the shacks are moving out. Once it starts getting slushy out there, they are difficult to slide off.
Truly, the date is a guess in every sense. But keep in mind, 2020 was a very dry year. And this winter did not produce as much snow as we have in the past. Does that mean less snow & ice to melt, warmer spring, earlier ice out? Who knows?
SO with all of that being said, it is about time to start with the guessing for this years ICE OUT CONTEST!
So how this works:
1. Choose your date and time that you think the ice will go out on Big Wood. Choosing a time is helpful if multiple people choose the same date. The person closest to the time will win.
2. Add a comment to this post with your best guess. A comment on Facebook will not be entered. We can only accept one entry per person/email.
3. The deadline to post your vote this year is 8am on April 10th, 2020. Watch our webcam at www.cozycovecabins.com for signs of change.
The winning date will be what the Town of Jackman records as the ice out date and time for 2021.
The winner will get 50% off one night when they stay with us 2 or more days or 1 full night free if they stay 4 or more days. This discount will expire December 31, 2021. New this year, you will also win a Cozy Cove Cabins hoodie.
