Crystal Clear Lake

A very clear, Clear Lake makes for magical skating rink

The lack of snow so far this year has created a rare opportunity for winter enthusiasts to enjoy the clear ice. In some areas you can see straight through to the bottom of the lake.

Thanks to a combination of cool, calm nights and an absence of snow, Clear Lake has frozen over into an almost-perfect giant sheet of ice. The best part is you can see the sand, rocks and even fish below.

Winter weather, with temperatures around the freezing mark and little-to-no-wind, has resulted in the rare glass-like ice.

Wasagaming (also known as Clear Lake) is the main town-site in Riding Mountain National Park. It is located at the south gate of Riding Mountain National Park along Highway 10. The town-site lies on the south shores of Clear Lake, the largest lake in Riding Mountain National Park. It is a popular tourist destination. The park is located roughly 250 miles northwest of Winnipeg.
