Winter festival at Alton Bay, NH, at the southern tip of Lake Winnipesauke, 14 February 2010. The ice is between 24" and 30" thick, except where the water is kept open around the docks to prevent damage. It is also very slippery!
The ice airport never opened in 2011. There was so much snow that winter that the ice never formed a decent surface. However, in 2012, there was very little snow, and the ice airport opened once the ice exceeded 12" thickness in the bay. It was not practical to go there for the winter carnival, but we did fly in the day after it, on President's Day Monday. I wasn't bold enough, at least not yet, to try this stunt alone, but Devan happily flew it.
