It’s a question as old as the lake herself. Every spring Nipissing visitors muse over the age-old question, “When do you think the ice will go out?”. Lake Nipissing is a BIG LAKE, with ice as thick as 30 inches in some winters, but we northerners never tire of watching for any indicative sign of spring.
To celebrate this time honored tradition, and to make things a little more interesting while we wait, Ferris the Place to Be is running an “ICE OUT” contest.
Enter to win in our Ice Off Contest for Lake Nipissing. We will be using the North Bay Nugget confirmation which they have been doing for 100 years.
