We’re out on Fairlee right now and it’s fully skateable. Ice fishers out across the lake, one guy on an ATV. We haven’t managed to poke through the ice and keep getting bored around 6”. Ice fishers are reporting 6”+ everywhere as well.
Texture is citrus peel-y, with very light snow dusting. Very similar to how it was before the thaw. Photo attached.
Annotated map attached as well. Green circle is skate launch; red line is the usual pressure ridge, with thick ice passage along the south shore; white squiggle is snow along the north shore of the eastern lobe.
