I would never take a atv, side by side, or a snow machine onto the ice. All it takes is a slushy spot even on good ice and you are in for a lot of work to get it off of the ice.
There is one place that I know of that has claimed multiple sled "victims". There is an island near the entrance of Horse Creek Bay that frequently has thin ice. Travelers snowmobiling from the marina to Renegade will often get too close to the island and this spot and send their machines down to Davy Jones locker. If sledding from the marina to Renegade, give that island a very wide berth and you will be fine. I do not know if this is due to a true "spring" or from the current, but it is a consistent hazard.Hey guys i am looking to take my 4 wheeler on the ice here in a couple weeks at the berry. We went on 12/30 with over 7 inches of ice. My question is where are the areas that you would avoid with a 4 wheeler or SxS due to unsafe ice. I have heard that there are springs and other areas that are unsafe but i have not heard the location. Thanks in Advance!
Yes; what Dallan said! :mrgreen:Dont people run chains anymore? Even in fairly deep slush I've been able to get around on a ATV no sweat.
