Guess when the ice melts on Alta Lake and the barrel floats past The Point. Great prizes from the the Scandinave Spa, Nesters Market, Whistler Fotosource and The Keg.
One of Whistler's oldest traditions originating in 1962.
Proceeds to The Point's children's summer theatre and music camps.
Please guess to a particular minute to avoid a tie!
(i.e. 3:27pm, not 3:30pm)
Guesses are now closed for the 2021 Alta Lake Ice-Break Raffle. The north end of the lake has melted, but the south half with the barrel is still frozen.
Watch for the barrel to drift by in this live video!
