Lake Mendota officially froze on January 14th, 2013
for the 2012-13 Mendota Freeze Contest!
The Clean Lakes Alliance and Rayovac are teaming up to host a contest to “Guess the Date” Lake Mendota freezes over.
Pick the correct date as determined by the Wisconsin State Climatology Office and you could be gliding across your favorite lake in a cross-country ski package provided by Erehwon Mountain Outfitter!
Prizes go in order of value to first 10 participants that guess the correct date. For updates on the Mendota Freeze Contest, go to the Clean Lakes Alliance Facebook page or follow the contest on Twitter! For more information on the Clean Lakes Alliance, please visit www.cleanlakesalliance.com.
