ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 4 pm – 6 pm – 8.5 Despite the light snow cover, the ice was smooth and faster than yesterday with great glide. As far as I know, there were not any rough patches.
RATING (1-10 with 10 being the best): 8 am – 10:30 am and 5 pm – 6:30 pm: 8.5 Smooth, fast ice. There were a few dirty spots on the ice in the far inner lane but not too bad.
RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 7.5 The crew worked hard to improve the ice after the rain yesterday. There were a few rough small rough spots but not too bad. This afternoon, there was snow cover but the ice underneath was mostly smooth. Kudos to the Oval crew and management for ensuring the […]
ICE RATING (from 1-10 with 10 being the best): 10 am – 12 pm: 8 The ice was smoother and faster today. A small spot of rough ice parallel to one of the doors (inner lane) that was subsequently marked with cones. A good day for skating, with very little wind, no snow, and a […]

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, […]
