Welcome to Skate for Gold!
This is the progress of my skating career!
My family and I went to visit beautiful ice castles. We visited them in Dillon, CO but there are a few other locations around the US. It is a big "castle" made of ice and inside there are crawl tunnels, slides, fountains and beautiful sculptures of icicles. It was really amazing and definitly worth going. When you walk around there is so much to see, they have some smaller slides and tunnels you have to crawl through, but they also have a huge slide and ...
I got to skate on the lake at Keystone. It was so beautiful with the mountains in the background. Also it was snowing when I went which made it even more beautiful. The lake was really big and had a christmas tree in the middle. On the rink it also had a closed off section for if you wanted to play a hockey game or something. It was so beautiful and I had a ton of fun. If you are ever up there for skiing or even if you go up there just to skate on the ...
This year I was in 2 different christmas shows. The first one I participated in was in Wisconsin. I did it with one of my good friends Naihua (@naihuaskates on instagram). We skated to "I Want a Hippopotomaus for Christmas". She dressed up a hippo and I dressed up as a little girl. We choreographed the whole program by ourselves and it turned out pretty good:) I had so much fun performing it and I hope you enjoy watching it!

Along with freestyle I also work on ice dance a little bit. I am almost done with all of my gold dances! I think ice dance is so fun and it helps develop your skating skills as well as posture. If you thinking about doing some ice dance I definitly recommend you try! You can watch some of my recent Ice Dance tests right here!

Building a zamboni or "homeboni" is very simple. We used 1 inch PVC pipe. Glued it together in the shape you see in the picture.
Once you hook a hose to it, you just need to adjust the water to the right amount. The right amount is very hard to know. We put one hole in the top T so we could easily see the water flow. After a few trials we know how much to adjust based on the top hole. On our homeboni we adjust until the water lands on the outside ...
