Magic on the Lake.  The fire will be warm and the hot chocolate delicious.  Join the locals for an evening on Little White Lake, with skating, skiing and snowshoeing.  The skating rink in front of the Massey yard (East end of Little White Lake) will be lit, and a lantern-lit trail will guide you around a 2km ski or snowshoe track.  Bring your headlamp and hot dogs, and make Valentine memories on Little White Lake! (Weather permitting, of course!)

Parking: John Evdokimoff Bike Park, and (carefully) cross the road down to the lake. 

Bring your own hot dogs and buns (fixings provided) to cook over the fire by the skating rink.  Other snacks and contributions welcome  Remember chairs and musical instruments to share by the fire.  

These events are hosted by the newly formed Shuswap Trail Alliance White Lake Trail Stewardship Group (STAWLTSG!!).  Donations to the Shuswap Trail Alliance gratefully accepted!
