As of January 6, 2018, there is approximately 14 inches of solid ice on Viva Naughton, at a minimum. While somewhat more moderate this season, temperatures have remained consistently low enough that ice continues to build and gain with each passing week.
Wheeled ATVs are not advisable, due to slush, snow-cover, and drifted snow. Tracked ATVs will work best for accessing the lake. Thank you for your interest in and support of our event!
Register by mail, online, at the Kemmerer Kum & Go or Hamsfork Station, or on-site during the event.
