Lee hiked out towards the new ice in 6-7″ of snow, coming across a section of newer ice with only an inch of snow about a hundred yards out. Phil Lowe had mentioned this new inshore plate as well. Unfortunately the ice there was three inches of snow/slush ice. Plenty strong to walk on, but probably not great for any sort of iceboating, even though one could have sailed through the snow covering it.
At this point he was still a ways from the black ice sheet, but felt it wasn’t safe to continue any further.
Snow is forecast for Sebago from late today well into Monday.
