Ontario & Quebec / Ontario Ice Conditions 2017/2018
« on: December 29, 2017, 12:25:01 pm »
I'm searching for information on ice conditions in various parts of Ontario. Specifically information from the Temagami area would be appreciated. I'm looking for safe "early" season routes to head out on ASAP.

I'm hoping that members with information can share it, and in turn I'll try to report here with what I find out.

-In central/NE Ontario/Algonquin/Almaguin/Muskoka we've had frozen ponds and small lakes for nearly two months, but conditions are variable. As of last week the major lakes in Muskoka only just started to fully close up.

-"Freeze up" was called in Temagami on December 17th: http://www.ottertooth.com/Temagami/Seasons/Winter/freezeup2017-06.htm

-As of December 29th apparently snowmobiles are running on Kukagami Lake, but I don't know about actual ice thickness/consistency

-Algonquin's lakes are apparently now all ice-covered, but "thin and unsafe": http://www.algonquinpark.on.ca/news/2017/christmas_newyears_2017_update.php

General Winter Camping Discussion / LOOKING FOR A CABIN TO RENT
« on: December 03, 2017, 10:17:44 am »
Hello everyone,

I'm not sure which sub-forum to put this in, but I figure that this one might be my best bet!

I'm looking for a cabin to rent for a few weeks this coming January (and end of December after Christmas).

Ideally the cabin is:

-quite rustic
-remote
-and somewhere lucky enough to be frozen over already

It does not need to be road accessible. Ideally it isn't. Ideally we take the snow machine in, and from there can do day trips, or multi-day trips hauling sleds w/ the canvas tent.

Does anybody have one, know of one, or have advice how I can find such a thing? I'm flexible on location, but am currently Ontario based.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Classifieds / Want to buy: Toboggan(s)

Hello winter trekkers,

I'm planning a trip at the end of this week in Algonquin (most likely), and am in need of two sleds.

Ideally I can find a sled (or two) in Ontario this week. I'd like to buy - but if anybody wants to rent out a sled they won't be using I'm open to that as well!

If I don't find what I'm looking for I'll be off to the plastics supplier to see what I can build!

Thanks.
