Ryan Bradley returned to Lake Placid from Sun Valley where he is a principal in their ice shows, and discussed his plans for the upcoming season, including shows and knee surgery, and his continued opportunities in commentating for NBC Sports. You can read my article about him HERE.

Last weekend I interviewed Denney and Coughlin, whom are also part of the principal cast in Sun Valley’s ice shows and have had a busy year that included shows and commentating. You can read my article HERE.

Adult Week in Progress

This week, the Adult Skating Week started on Sunday evening and continues until Saturday evening.

On Saturday afternoon, the Adult skaters have their own show in the 1980 rink at 3 pm. This is a fun show where the adult skaters show off their skills and often includes ice dance and group numbers in addition to freestyle programs. I will be there!

If you are interested in participating in the Adult Weekend/Week next year, you can go to Lake Placid Skating to learn more!

The last Saturday Night Ice Show of the season is August 27th at 7:30 pm, with National pairs competitors Erika Choi Smith and AJ Reiss. You can see admission information at THIS PAGE.

As always, I continue to post photos from the Saturday Night Ice Shows on Facebook; you can see them by going to my Page, then to Photos, where I have the albums arranged by Ice Show date.
