I just found this bit of video from last season. Skating in Danseys Pass on the Maerewhenua River - never thought I would see that freeze! I was just driving through and was surprised to see so much ice around on the river. A bit freaky skating over fast moving water with rapids on the down side but a great experience which I didn't push too far!!
Looking forward to next winter!
and I saw this on youtube - Downhill Ice skating which might be taking skating to far for me!!
