The first measurable snowfall occurs in late October, and the last in late April or early May. Average snowfall ranges 55-70 inches, but is highly variable. (Average snowfall appears greater than average precipitation because snow is less dense than water, making a given mass of snow occupy a greater volume than the same mass of liquid precipitation, and precipitation is measured in only liquid form.)
The frost-free season averages 120 days from June to mid-September, and in the winter, the lakes are typically frozen from around mid-November through mid-April. The ice may freeze to two feet thick. However, ice up and ice out vary each year.
