We finished up with a skate on the Lower Manorburn dam. Ice was hard and fast and we skated over most of the main basin. Good to finally be on good ice which gave us confidence to play around a bit and good to see some of the locals out on the ice.
Weather outlook is not too flash though and these last days might be the best we get this winter....
Poolburn - 40-50mm of ice - only skate-able because it was hard black ice. Already thawing when we left so not worth a visit unless there are a few frosts
Lower Manoburn - up to 65mm out in the main basin. Good skating but weakening in warmer temps.
