Ice on the Move; Eagle Lake Ice Update

The Eagle Lake ice is on the move now!  Overnight and during the day things have changed big time.

South winds have piled up ice on Gull Rock and the mouth of the creek.

Eagle Lake ice update…


Rain and wind has taken it’s toll on the Eagle Lake ice.  The gulls may have had their nesting spots move location after piles of ice begin to push up on their rock.  They will have to tough it out….

An afternoon west wind has shifted the ice pack.

Winds have shifted in the afternoon and so has the Eagle Lake ice!  Right now about 50 % of Vermilion Bay is ice covered.  From this point on things can change rapidly.  Stay tuned!

When will the Eagle Lake ice be gone?

The ice out competition at Vermilion Bay Lodge is based on the date that ice is no longer visible floating on the bay.  Several people are in the running for guessing the correct date…….you know who you are!

Be ready for the final Eagle Lake ice update, coming soon!
