    Unless you act like a donkey, yes.

    I go every year this time of year so I can bag on my shit without fear of repurcussion. Fun to chase the guys on dirt bikes

    Also don't go unless you have studs, your car will be worthless and holding up traffic. Doesn't matter what car you have, studs is the main thing.

    Damn, I was hoping to get by with AWD and my non studded new winters. How do they solve the issue of getting onto the ice? I hear the edges of Ghost dont freeze well.

    I did that performance ice driving school in my 09 F150 Crewcab with all-seasons, which was a hoot, but yeah, it's going to be MUCH slower around any course compared to anything with studded tires.

    It’s going to get shut down sooner or later, just like Ice Dice and winter driving schools did.

    Shut down what exactly? It’s a path cleared on a public lake, there is no group or organization. I could go plough a giant cock and balls right at the bridge and people would run laps on her all day long.

    There is actually a “organization” or “club” who goes out together and has been trying to create and event that isn’t an “event” because they know what happened in the past. Transalta owns the right of way onto the lake, and can shut them down if they feel it’s a organized group or event. They are just trying to get around it really.

    As I recall, Transalta shut it down (winter driving events) before due to potential liability reasons. I am actually surprise it has flared back up

    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.

    I went out to watch a few times and you were buried way at the back out of the way.

    Only way around this is a Chiniki Gas Bar sponsored event.
    Stole the idea from a PitM arena deal idea.

    There were a 1000 people out there today, no exaggeration. Like you needed a parking lot attendant just to drive across the lake, kind of busy.

    Taken with my friend's potato, maybe 1/10 the cars out there.

    I went on Saturday figuring it would be quieter while still cold ahead of this weather. Was nice, not many people on the back track so got some fun in. Main track was fun but so many on it you’d be tailgating someone after a couple corners while also having someone on your ass too.

    Only thing that irked me as dangerous is they no one spreads out for parking. Lots of people parked right side by side like a grocery store. It’s been cold enough that the ice is probably thick but that’s still not bright.
