I didn't realize how great new skates felt! I have been riding on 80's hockey skates and it is so true that technology and design of hickey skates have come a long way. 

Glacier Ice Rink's open skate is very popular so you do have to prepared to deal with traffic on the ice and some crazy kids speeding by. I was able to hop on my new skates which were newly sharpened and take some turns on the ice. It felt great and reminded me how much I like skating in general.
