It was quite a warm day here in Lake Placid, almost like spring! Yet, we still had skating.
ICE RATING (1-10, with 1o being the best): 6.5
The ice held up surprisingly well considering the warm temperatures (in the 40s!) and the breeze.
On the back stretch of the Oval, the ice was rather frosty which made skating “sticky” in places but the front was relatively fast and smooth, with a layer of water over the top. Overall it was much better than expected.
