    I’ve lived in Cochrane 18 years and there has been tracks cleared on this lake every winter and likely the 40 years before this. The news having one guy or group claiming credit for a drift track that’s ‘never been done before’, is hilarious. The rcmp patrol the parking lot every year too, people need to chill out. RCMP can shut down a lake in winter as easy as shutting down airspace over the Rocky Mountains.

    i was out there today; 2 RCMP came in, drove down the ramp onto the lake, circled a bit then left, lol.

    I'm surprised nobody crashes into eachother there .. sketchy as shit.

    I've been thinking of going out after work for a few laps on a weekday to avoid the ridiculous number of people. Anyone been out on a weekday? Ice still safe after the recent warm temps?

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    You definitely want to go during daylight hours.
    Warm temps might be slightly slushy on surface but still sold in the core. Takes a while and a lot of energy to thaw ice that thick.

    Sounds like a good time to go is now.
    Lowest risk of cracking a rim or busting your side skirts.

    It wasn’t a liability issue, they just simply did not want organized driving events on the lake. Our club carried insurance before this event came to light, and parked on tarps in case of leaks, as well as stayed far away and as hidden as possible from the public boat launch and they were totally unwilling to allow anything.
    There were definitely some liability concerns, at least regarding us (SASC), when I spoke with TransAlta. TransAlta's fear was that if in the extremely unlikely event we had a dozen cars go through the ice people would still lawyer up regardless of the waiver we had them sign. And with TransAlta being the owners of the lands under the reservoir they felt the risk was unacceptable. It was a big shame because we had safety at the forefront, completely opposite to these yahoo's.
