Nordic Skating, Ekoln, Dec 17, 2016

A lot of driving in search of ice this day, Erken was still open, Närdingen had some half-decent ice with partially melted and re-frozen snow, Hammarskog had some very nice new clear ice but on a limited area, and from Ryssviken north towards Oxen we could stretch out a bit.

Nordic Skating, Nynäsviken-Vällingen-Långsjön, Dec 3rd 2016

Great Sunday on ice.. Started off with Nynäsviken, inner archipelago premier for the season, then we drove north-west to Vällingen, where the ice was a tad too thin for comfort.. We wrapped up the day on Långsjön, where the surface sang and cracked in a cheerful way..

Nordic Skating, Gisslaren & Tämnaren, Dec 3rd 2016

A short test-run on Lake Gisslaren, with some 4cm of ice under 2cm powder, fairly safe but a tad sketchy for soloing. A bit longer run on Lake Tämnaren, with some 7cm ice but also with some snow and rougher ice at times. In all though, great start of the season in the Uppland/Södermanland area!
