I was into town last week (Jan.21) by snowmobile across Five Mile Bay. Most of the ice was good at 7 to 8 inches thick. However about 25% is about 6 inches thick and covered with slush that make going more difficult. I was in on Jan. 26th and the conditions had not improved much.
The ice between the Indian Dock and Shasha is is between 7 and 8 inches thick with very little slush away from shore. The ice on the west end of five mile bay is still about 4 inches thick with about 4 inches of slush on top.
THIS SIERIES OF 25 PICTURE WAS TAKEN DEC.30/08 ON MY FLIGHT BACK INTO KINERAS BAY AFTER SPENDING A WEEK AND A HALF OUT VISITING MY FAMILY OVER CHRISTMAS. MANY THANKS TO SCOTT JACKLIN OF "CENTRAL HELICOPTERS" MY OLDEST SON GRANT CAME FOR HIS FIRST HELICOTER RIDE ON HIS WAY BACK TO SAULT STE. MARIE.
