Many of us live in areas where ponds and lakes freeze over during the winter. My family and friends snowshoe, cross country ski, spend time ice fishing and snow mobiling across local lakes. Although we are careful to not go on the lake until there is a thick layer of ice, accidents happen. A fall through the ice and into a lake can be dangerous any time of year, but dealing with very cold water and air temperatures makes it even more of a danger. The US Swim Schools Association has shared some great tips with us, and we hope you’ll all read and remember them – just in case! Read the tips HERE and be prepared.
