Lake Winnipesaukee ICE-OUT – 2015

Lake Winnipesaukee
ICE-OUT – 2015

ICE-OUT was Officially Declared
Friday, April 24, 2015

From: www.winnipesaukee.com
“Ice-Out” on Lake Winnipesaukee occurs when the ice that has covered the Lake since late December or early January melts enough to allow the M/S Mount Washington cruise ship to navigate between Alton Bay, Center Harbor, Weirs Beach, Meredith and Wolfeboro.

Ice-Out is greatly anticipated by residents and visitors since it is the traditional start of the spring season and many Islanders regain water access to their cottages. The date has been observed and recorded for over 120 years. The setting of the exact date and time is non-scientific and is now determined by an observer in a small plane from Emerson Aviation that flies over the lake several times a day. When the pilot makes the Ice-Out call it is considered official.
