Kandiyohi County issues warning about Green Lake ice conditions near Spicer's Saulsbury Beach
A hazardous ice warning has been issued for Green Lake near Saulsbury Beach ahead of Spicer Winterfest and Polar Plunge activities this weekend.
SPICER — The Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office issued a warning Tuesday about hazardous ice on Green Lake near Saulsbury Beach in Spicer.
Lake ice is never considered safe, the Sheriff's Office said in a post on its Facebook page.
Several areas of open water have developed where snow had been piled up on the lake, the post said. The water is several feet deep.
The area is of special concern because of this weekend's Spicer Winterfest and Polar Plunge activities.
A large area near Saulsbury Beach has been marked with signs and yellow caution tape.
The ice near the Polar Plunge site does not seem to have the same issues, according to the post. However, those attending this weekend's events are encouraged to park on shore and walk out to the event sites.
