Iceboating on Williams Lake – Seize the Day

Iceboating on Williams Lake NS

Hurtling across a frozen lake at whip-lash speeds, feet-first, on your back, on a plank, centimetres from the ice is what iceboaters live for! The bone-numbing temperatures, the frightening speeds and the exhilarating thrill of a swift sail on a smooth sheet of ice is worth the wait. But the universe has to align for optimum conditions before passionate iceboaters can safely seize the day.
