Mild Winter In Bear Lake

It has been a mild winter here in Bear Lake.  What does this mean?  It means less snow in the mountains which translate into less spring run-off which then means less water going into the lake.  Since 2011 brought a lot of water to the lake marking the highest water level in a decade this is welcomed news.  People enjoy the lake being down a little as it creates more beach area to play on.  We hope this will also mean the Garden City Beach will be open again this year.  Last year everyone had to go to the North Shore or South Shore (Rendezvous Beach) to get to a decent beach.  We will hope for the best.
