Guide Review - Review of "Snowden on Ice" - A Holiday Ice Skating Video

Olympic figure skaters Ekaterina Gordeeva and Kurt Browning skate in a beautiful and heartwarming ice skating tale.

The narrator is the pond's aging caretaker, "Scootch" (Scott Hamilton). "The Zamboni Man" song introduces Scootch. He drives the Zamboni and talks about how the town was named after Grandpa Albert, a champion skater. Grandpa Albert built his home right on the pond's edge and taught his grand-daughter, Kate, how to skate.

The story begins as Kate (Ekaterina Gordeeva) and daughter Lizzie (Dana Grinkov) return to Albert's Pond. Kate is returning to Albert's Pond with her daughter, Lizzie, after her husband has died.

Kate takes to the ice again with Lizzie and a beautiful and heartwarming story unfolds.

"Snowden on Ice" is a lovely ice skating show and will definately bring the holiday spirit into many homes and hearts. It is a story of magic, hope and happiness.
