The Canadians are a bit more conservative, calling the ice "thin ice," which means from 2" to 6" thick.

Reminds me of 2013/2014. We're talking some serious ice.

I think it was 2013 when RH was still iced over well into May. My son and I had taken the first public Ranger trip of the season the year before and they were still breaking ice on that date the following year.
