Dave P and I then headed for Poolburn Dam. Unfortunately we left the run a bit late and missed the safest ice but managed to have a skate around some of the edges of the dam. Great to be up there though and Poolburn looked fab with a winter coat of snow around the edges. We had a fine time exploring and enjoying the environment.
Finished off with another skate at Rush Cutters on the way back. Hoping for another frost tomorrow.
Lower Manorburn is skate-able in Rush Cutters - if you go, skate early with the frost. There is quite a bit of weed under the ice which weakens the ice so take care. Ice 50-60mm thinning as you go out.
Poolburn - needs a big frost to thicken the ice. (forecast not good)
Coalpit - about 10mm new ice in the shade. Not close to skate-able
Idaburn 15mm on one side then going to water. Not close to skate-able
