Ice, Lake Christina, Ashby MN

We made brief call to the City Restaurant in Ashby, at lunch time today, to confirm the lake had indeed fully frozen, last week as we suspected.

What a hoot, it the town of the Coot... the gal answering the phone said, "I don't think so, but wait, let me ask... Hey Guys! Those iceboaters want to know if Christina's frozen?... Audibly over the phone "Hell Yes!!!" was heard in perhaps 6 part harmony... and she gets back on the phone and said "Oh Hell Yes, It's Frozen!"

Ice Checking/Sailing will begin on Friday

It's gonna be great!

For this weekend, for convenience to the ice, you may want to also try:

The ashby resort & campground, a bit more spartan, but much closer to the ice, (a mile & a half)

It's gonna be great!
