Ummm… guys… I don’t want to scare you .. but.. I think.. .. oh jeeze.. .. I think I see a ghost! ... … no seriously… if you take a look to the North, just through the tree’s, you just might catch a glimpse of it! Ok ok, there’s no ghost.. Well there is, it’s just … well it’s a lake! We’re just South of the glacier fed lake known as, Ghost Lake! Don’t worry though!! The only scary thing about Ghost Lake is the amount of fun you can have on it! This man-made earth bowl of paradise is popular for sailing, power boating, water-skiing, wakeboarding, paddle boarding and camping! The Ghost Lake Campground is the perfect spot for those looking to hit the lake for a little fun in the sun. The lake was built to provide hydroelectric power and the water level, controlled by the Ghost Dam, can fluctuate quite a bit… soooo maybe bring the back up floaty chair just in case it’s too shallow to boat! On the other hand maybe it’s the middle of winter right now and you’re getting really, really mad at me for even mentioning summer! Well fear not my friends.. Ghost Lake is also very popular for Iceboating! Soo iceboating is clearly..well.. Boating on ice.. But.. how do the boats move? Are they,
A - Pulled by dogs, B - pushed by the wind, or C - pushed by an engine powered fan, like a fanboat?
If you answered B, pushed by the wind, well I’m not taking the wind out of your sails! Due to strong and consistent winds, The Ghost Lake Ice Boat Club is the premier Ice boat club in Western Canada!
