NEWS CCW Editor JUNEAU - For many Juneau residents, a winter wouldn't be complete without skating on Twin Lakes or skiing across Mendenhall Lake.

Are you skating on thin ice?

The ice on Twin Lakes in the winter can be quite inviting, but find out if it's thick enough before you start skating. Early in the winter, the ice is likely to be strong black ice but it's crucial to check for ice thickness and strength before setting out on new ice, according to Mark Scholten, who has been monitoring Juneau's ice for more than a decade.
