Presentations – Saturday March 3rd
Winter camping is available at the Nipigon Marina from March 2- 4. We are able to provide two winter camping tents that are large enough for four people in each. They are pretty basic and need something on the ground, as well as a heater of some sort if that’s something you want. They can be booked on a first come first serve basis and are $15/tent/night. We are going to take care of clearing the area for sites and setting up the 2 tents on Friday at the Marina. Have your own tent and just looking for a site? Reserve a spot for $5/night and we will clear a space for you at the Marina. Send us a message now to reserve a tent or camping site at the Marina for Ice Fest!
Guided Snowshoe Trek
Not a climber? Coming to the ice fest with the whole family? Why not take a guided snowshoe trek up the Mazukama Falls Trail through a beautiful cedar forest and enjoy the spectacular views from the summit!
Meeting place is at the Legion Hall (102 5th St, Nipigon) on Saturday March 3 at 8:30 a.m. The trek is approximately a 15 minute drive from Nipigon and is near some of the ice climbing venues. People should be prepared take their own vehicles or arrange their own rides/carpooling. Registration is $20/person and includes a free Ice Fest T-shirt and a pair of snowshoes to use if you don’t have your own!
