Dear Editor:

There have been several rumours out there about why the gate is locked at the Windermere Beach. The Windermere Community Association handed back the beach to the Regional District East Kootenay at the end of last year, so basically the community association is no longer responsible for the beach or the gate.

The RCMP have advised the Regional District East Kootenay against accessing the ice road or the lake at the Windermere point of entry due to liability reasons; however, the gate is not locked and anyone can enter at their own risk.
