Imagine the best ice you’ve skated on in Lake Placid – today’s ice was probably like that, or even better. The crew has been outdoing themselves on the ice maintenance, and today’s ice was heralded as the best of the season by more than one overjoyed skater.
ICE RATING (from 1-10, with 10 being the best): 9
Beautiful smooth, fast ice. The edge of the corner by the “Legends of the Oval” board was cordoned off due to softer ice, and the far edges were a bit rough still, but 99 percent of the oval was smoother and faster than it’s been all season. What a day to skate!
