The Vernon Search and Rescue Group Society (VSAR) is reminding everyone most lake ice is still not thick enough for activities like skating, Ice fishing or walking
VSAR has provided a chart that spells out how thick lake ice should be for a variety of activities.
Ice should be at least 10cm or 4 inches thick before you walk on it. Drilling a hole in clear ice is the best way to gauge its thickness.
