ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best):
10 am – 12 pm – 8.5
What a morning to skate! There were a few small rough spots by the finish lines and on the edge of the oval but otherwise it was smooth, fast ice.
4 pm – 6 pm – 6
The surface was softer especially by the finish lines and in front of the warming hut. But once the sun went down the surface firmed up a bit.
10 am – 12 pm – 5.5
Snow covering the track and damp conditions made for slow ice. Luckily there were only a few small rough spots on the track.
4 pm – 6 pm – 6.5
Better surface, it wasn’t as slow as this morning and had less snow covering.
