Ice Safety 101

By Sunset • March 13th, 2017

With the recent swings in weather now is a good time to brush up on the dangers of ice.

Did you know the colour of ice may be an indication of its strength?

  • Clear blue ice is strongest.
  • White opaque or snow ice is half as strong as blue ice. Opaque ice is formed by wet snow freezing on the ice.
  • Grey ice is unsafe. The grayness indicates the presence of water.
