Rating from 1-10 with 10 being best:
10 am – 12 pm: 8.5
The ice was smoother and fairly fast. There were some ripples by the Legends of the Oval corner (by the board of the same name). Far inside corner of the track has some gouges that are being repaired. Overall a great session!
4 pm – 6 pm: 8
The ice was a bit slower this session but still good.
Side note for those of you who might want to skate on the lake–be careful! Some spots are extremely rough (especially on the front “Main Street” side of the loop). The best solution is to wear Nordic skates (cross country boots with nordic blades, which are better suited for natural ice) and watch for the many cracks, bumps, and gouges in the surface. On the bright side, you can watch the dogsled! 😉
