Labrador – ‘Unprecedented’ amount of snow this late in June

15 June 2018 – The amount of snow around Igloo Lake Lodge, a southeastern Labrador fishing camp, is wreaking havoc on summer plans.

“It’s not uncommon to see snow around the lodge — not six feet, though,” says Jim Burton, who operates Igloo Lake Lodge.

Burton said this is the first time in 50 years he’s had to fly in a snowmobile in order to get supplies to the camp and get it ready for the season.

“Unprecedented ice and snow conditions given the time of year.”
