Ootsa Lake, British Columbia

The hard crust of snow is scraped off in the size of a hockey rink to provide some smooth ice for a game that can be watched from the warmth of a car. 1967 March or so.

This is the rink when not in use. Note the hockey net that was made in the Burns Lake high school. Ootsa Lake ice is about two feet thick at this time of year.

A hockey game in progress by Grades 4, 5 and 6 boys and girls from Ootsa Lake Elementary School.
