Question: Can we skate or walk on the Lac Blanc when the lake is frozen?
Answer: No, it is forbidden and dangerous to venture out onto the frozen lake (whether it is the Lac Blanc or the Lac Noir). Even if the lake is frozen, the temperatures are not sufficiently negative and for a sufficiently long period of time to ensure a solid ice cover. The thickness of the ice can also vary depending on sun exposure, currents and wind and can break up even under the weight of a child in places. Finally, you can be fined up to 150 € (the Gendarmerie carries out regular checks).
