Washagami Landing has an interesting location on Lake Washagami. On one side we have a bay where the water does a 90 degree turn; on the other the channel narrows and gets shallower, which makes the water speeds up a little. The Mossman island to the west also slows down the water for most of our waterfront.

In the winter this means we have a nice patch in front of our cottage where the water is slow enough for the ice to form easily, and a patch to the side that never freezes even in the coldest of days.

This year we are lucky to have such nicely formed ice this early in the winter! I think the temperature swing followed by a sudden dramatic drop must have helped.
And we wasted no time “tilling” it out of the snow.

Tilling the Snow

The first group of lucky guests to try out the rink! A great way to celebrate the start of a new year!
