As of late November, there was about 6" of good ice on the lake, with minimal slush. Recent weeks have seen cooler than normal temperatures, which continue to build ice and firm up the snow cover. Please check back as the Derby gets closer for more current updates.
With an elevation of just over 7,200 feet, Lake Viva Naughton generally sees a minimum of 24" of solid ice, even on warmer years. Water-level management has improved in recent years, which has resulted in minimal slush conditions.
While participants are permitted to use any vehicle they wish, tracked vehicles are always recommended due to the potential for deep drifts and slush. The Kemmerer Lions Club is not able to provide rescue services for retrieval of stuck vehicles.
