Paul Ouellet kite boards on Gull Lake off Aspen Beach Provincial Park on Friday. The Red Deer man said although not much of the lake is yet ice free, enough is open for him to launch his kite, catch brisk spring winds from the northwest and ply the frigid waters. If winds and showers don’t finish off the ice on the lake this weekend, it may take a while. Cooler temperatures are expected to resume after Monday. Please see the complete forecast on Page A2.
