Park Sends Warning After Skiers Fall In Lake McDonald

Posted: Updated:
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK -

Glacier National Park officials sent out a warning after two cross country skiers fell through the ice on Lake McDonald this weekend.

Park Superintendent Jeff Mow says two visitors were crossing the lake on skis when the ice gave way and they fell into the icy waters.

The two were able to rescue themselves though much of their equipment was lost.

Mow says the lake's surface ranges from open water to slush to ice in close proximity and conditions can change within a matter of hours.

The lake is not completely frozen at this time and Mow says any visitor needs to use extreme caution around it.
