ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 8 (beginning of session) 6 (end of session) Much smoother and faster ice today – for a while. The ice quality deteriorated rapidly as the sun got brighter; the ice became rather soft in spots, and towards the end several spots were “slushy”.
ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 8 Despite the snow and wind today, the ice was fairly smooth and fast.
ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 8 am – 10:30 am: 6.5 Softer, slower ice this morning. 5 pm – 6:30 pm: 7.5 Faster and smoother ice, although there is was a thin layer of water on top due to rain.
ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 8.5 Most of the surface was smooth and fast except for the far edges were soft and/or shell ice. Not too bad considering the warmer weather and bright sun all day.
ICE RATING (from 1-10, with 10 being the best) 8 am – 10:30 am – 5 Rough conditions this morning, the snow covering made for slower ice. 5 pm – 6:30 pm – 7.5 Better conditions but still a bit slow.
The crew worked very hard to bring the ice back after a warm, rainy day! It went from looking like sandpaper to pretty smooth and fast! Thanks, Ray and crew for your hard work! ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 7.5 Smooth, fast(er) ice! As the session went on and the warm […]
ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 7.5 The ice wasn’t super smooth or fast, but it still had some glide. A few small rough shell ice patches on the back (school) side but overall pretty decent considering the rain showers!
ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 5 Well, it was an interesting day. We had a day of rain which turned into ice and snow, which is understandably rough on the ice. The crew worked on the Oval for several hours before the first session, removing excess water. Our guest rater, Dieter, […]
ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 6.5 Snow covered surface, choppy in the usual places (very edge of track especially by the Legends of the Oval corner) and a bit slow. Thanks, Dieter F. for the “guest ice report”!
What a difference a day makes. Although the ice certainly wasn’t “perfect”, it was much improved from yesterday’s conditions. Some of the spots on the ice were so smooth and fast I would have rated a 9…but there are still some rough spots (especially on the corners) and the far inner lane still needs work, […]
