*PLEASE NOTE: THE REST OF THE OVAL SESSIONS ARE CANCELLED TODAY 2/20/17*
Still a remarkably sunny and warm day in Lake Placid. We had our 9 am – 11 am session this morning but the oval is closed for the rest of the day. Fingers crossed for tomorrow’s morning session.
ICE RATING (1-10, with 10 being the best): 8
Even after melting to what looked like a large puddle this weekend, this morning’s ice was remarkably smooth and fast. The edges and far inside were a bit rough and there was some shell ice developing in same spots by end of session, but not too bad. The ice in front of “Legends of the Oval” sign was melted down to concrete, but not a big deal since we don’t really skate there anyway.
Side note: I don’t usually post photos of myself, but I did my characteristic “end of season leg lift pose” (I’m originally a figure skater, LOL) down the straightaway on my speed skates–good to have fun!
