Fort Peck 2022: The Hard Water Summit
Published on March 16th, 2021
Born from a social media question, “Who wants to go to Fort Peck?”, a strong response from ice sailing adventurists moved the inquiry from idea to action for a hardwater kumbaya in eastern Montana.
Planning is now underway for the 2022 Hard Water Summit, open to all ice sailors around a 3-week window in March. Closer to the event, the best week will be selected as conditions become known, but winters are cold in Montana so ice is often 16+ inches thick.
Fort Peck Lake is the largest lake in Montana at 134 miles long with 1520 miles of shoreline. Formed by the largest earth-filled dam in the world, Fort Peck Lake is on the Missouri River, approximately 70 miles south of the Canadian border.
“Ice sailing on Fort Peck Lake in Montana has been a highlight of my ice sailing experiences,” said instigator Daniel Hearn. “The miles of ice and spectacular landscape are unique in North American ice sailing.”
