What is the Perfect Report?

The perfect ice report is, of course, a report of perfect ice. But that’s not the issue today. John Zimmerman sent this around, and it’s an excellent guide to keep in mind as you check ice and send reports. It’s well below freezing here in Maine this morning, with more cold on the way.

What is the Perfect Ice Report?

a. Where is the ice, name of the lake?

b. When did you check?
c. Name the nearest town.

d. Where is the access?
e. Ice thickness and composition (4 inches black ice with 3 inches of snow ice on top).
f. How far out on the ice did you check?(10ft.,10yds,10mi)

g. State the hazards.(pressure ridge, shell ice, drain holes, open holes)

h. Size of the plate.
i. How did you survey the ice? (walk, skate, bike, sail, drive by, fly over)
j. Best way to get in touch with you to confirm information.

Some of us will drive a long way if we knew it was worth it.

ALL OF US WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL IF YOU SAVE US THE TRIP!

THINK ICE!
