Finally starting the Ice Blog! This will record my free skating experiences in the South Island of New Zealand. Our season is short but that does not stop some of us from chasing natural ice.
Daylight saving finished this weekend and winter is slowly approaching. Looking forward to seeing if we can have some of the experiences this year that we had last year - especially skating on Poolburn Dam.
Have found a new possiblity in Alexandra township. Lanes Dam in Blackmore Park. If there is a big freeze there may be ice there - although it may be too exposed.
Just up the road is this spot - another to check out.
