Share your #LakeLifeGoodLife photos for the chance to win amazing prizes!

What do you do at the lake when you’re feeling adventurous? How do you kick back and relax? Who do you ask when you need a companion?

We want to see those gorgeous hikes and peaceful canoe rides; those tubing wipeouts and wild wakeboard skills. We want to know what lake life means to you!

We’re looking for photos ­– plain and simple. Show us your own creative style. Show where you go when you feel like exploring. Show us your favourite memories.

Show us what lake-lovers know: that the lake life is the good life!
