The Adventure KidsTM aka Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta had another exciting winter adventure, this time at Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey by going "glice" skating. No strangers to adventure, throughout the years we have gone paragliding, parasailing, ridden ATVs, horses, camels, electric bikes, Segways, have surfed, snorkeled, swam with dolphins, golfed around the world, have done archery, Nordic and cross-country skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, dog sledding, paddleboarding, rappelling, ziplining, raced 4-wheel and 2-wheel vehicles, gone off-road driving, flown a plane, blown glass, made silver jewelry, and hold professional level scuba diving titles, yet (Edward) had never gone ice skating. We decided to remedy this during our stay at Crystal Springs Resort and went "glice" skating. What fun and another adventure for the books!

We stayed at Crystal Springs Resort in early March 2022 and found that there is always something interesting happening there all day long, every day, in every season. The resort is an adventure-lovers dream with its three golf courses (Wild Turkey Golf Club, 18-holes, Course Rating/Slope 75.3/135), Crystal Springs Golf Club, 18-holes, Course Rating/Slope 73.5/139, and Cascades Golf Club, 9-holes, Course Rating/Slope 37.7/141), and activities to inspire all ages and abilities according to the season. During our stay a few of their many activities offered included horseback riding, hiking, yoga flow, body pump, axe throwing, archery, paint + sip on canvas, mason jar paint + sip, pony rides, laser clay shooting, wine tasting, and "glice" skating.

Picking your skates

It was approaching the end of winter during our stay, and although we had experienced a wide variety of winter sports adventures throughout the years, (Edward) had never been ice skating. We decided to remedy that by experiencing what the resort described as "glice" skating that takes place on a "high performance rink manufactured by Glice, one of the world's leading producers of Swiss-engineered rinks." Instead of a using traditional ice rink, the synthetic surface keeps the surface smooth and allows for a longer outdoor skating season (November - March).

Getting ready

After being fitted for skates in the Grand Cascades Lodge Pro Shop, we walked the short distance to the attractive Glice Rink, found a bench, and put on our skates. Although (Debra) had experience ice skating on traditional ice rinks, we both were novices skating on the manufactured surface, so we would be learning at the same pace. To get the feel of having skates on, we first walked around the artificial turf to get our balance under control before venturing out onto the rink. Once we felt comfortable in our skates, we gingerly stepped onto the rink. We were now ready for our skating adventure to begin.

Let the show begin

We started out tentatively by basically learning to walk with our skates on the surface while holding onto the railing (with a white knuckle "death grip") as we slowly made our way around the rink. Gradually, as we became a bit more confident in our abilities we started straying farther from the railing and started taking longer strides. We were soon joined on the large rink by a family of two parents with two young children, and it was interesting to see how each of us approached skating.

Tough day Glice Skating

Over time, we started skating with some speed and agility feeling more confident in our abilities each time we rounded the rink, and (Edward) found that (he) could even skate backwards. While neither of us plan on entering the next winter Olympics to compete in any of the ice-skating events, we had a fantastic time experiencing "glice" skating at Crystal Springs Resort and that is what adventures are all about, trying new things, having fun, and more importantly, making and sharing new memories.
