He said that he chopped through the ice and found it 3 to 4 inches thick, but "When SandyLu took this picture it was blowing about 30 miles an hour, so we did not skate. If you do go up and plan on skating, please be safe! Remember to always tell someone where you are going and what time you plan on returning. It's also a good idea to not skate alone."
