As i write this right now it is snowing like it hasn't snowed yet this year. I am wondering what snow has for an effect on ice. Does it make it slower in making more ice and function as a insulator to cold and more importantly as a barrier to warm? jUst wondering cause i don't get out that much. What i do know is it makes it easier to walk on that is for sure. ike

Snow does act as an insulator, thus hampering the ice making process.

The only lake around here we need more ice on is the Zumbro, everything else is foot traffic only and more ice just causes more work for the hand auger.

snow on the ice will also stop the photosynthesis process, and if it comes early, can cause fish kills. likely won't happen to you guys, since it is practically feruary.

i tend to like a little snow on the ice. keeps the fish in that low light mood longer cool.gif
