2013-200. * General Warning: Winter Conditions

Due to winter conditions floating aids to navigation might be withdrawn, damaged or moved from charted positions. AIS and Racon might be removed from buoys. Lights and beacons might be covered with snow and ice. Mariners are advised to navigate with great caution.

Travelling on fast ice on foot, by vehicles or by any other means may be dangerous as ice strength can vary greatly. Travelling on frozen reservoirs is particularly dangerous because changing water levels may weaken the ice and create voids hidden beneath the ice. Travellers are strongly advised not to travel alone and to confirm ice conditions locally.
