2017 January Stump Lake Hockey

Stump Lake Hockey

Although outdoor pond hockey is as Canadian as maple syrup and “eh”, it doesn’t happen all that often on the mild west coast. This year, due to a long cold snap where temperatures were generally below zero for several weeks, a number of lakes in the vicinity of Squamish froze hard enough to allow for skating. On Saturday we took Wally for a walk around Alice Lake provincial park, and it was fun to watch the excitement of kids, families and friends taking advantage of the icy conditions. A number of small rinks had been cleared on Stump Lake on which pick-up hockey games were being played and a few shots can be seen by clicking this link or the embedded photo.
