For the safety of all, VF does not recommend ice skating or ice activities on any of our three lakes.
With the arrival of cold weather, it is important to reiterate this warning and remind everyone that the lakes are very unpredictable in the winter. Our lakes are stream fed and have underground springs in several spots which create warm spots. It can take a surprisingly long time for the ice to thicken after cold weather begins. There is no way to determine if there is sufficient ice and in what areas that safe activities could occur. As such, we warn everyone to exercise caution when venturing near our lakes in winter.
Thank you for your cooperation with this important safety recommendation.
