Lake Windermere Ambassadors

Enter the Catch the Freeze Contest to win a Gerrys Gelati gift certificate and an I Love My Lake T-shirt!

Only $2 per guess all you have to do is guess when Lake Windermere will freeze over this year. The lake is officially frozen when edge-to-edge ice is judged from Rushmere, Windermere, and Fort Point to Lower Lakeview Road. Invermere Mayor Gerry Taft will make the final call. The first to guess the correct date will be deemed the contest winner, and will be featured in The Pioneer. Proceeds go towards Lake Windermere Ambassadors water stewardship programs. Find us collecting guesses at Gerrys or contact us for more information by email at info@lakeambassadors.ca or phone 250-341-6898.
