Icing on the Cake

On Tuesday, Pegula Ice Arena's main bowl sprung to life, transforming from a dingy concrete floor into an actual, honest-to-goodness hockey rink - and thanks to the Mortenson Construction PIA webcam, the world was able to follow along.

The ice building process actually began last Friday with the first application of water to surface, and continued through Monday and Tuesday with the completion of the base layers before painting and additional layers sealed things in. What follows is a sequence of snapshots from the webcam tracking the PIA's inaugural installation from beginning to the end of Tuesday.

For some pretty stunning photographs of the finished paint job (without the ice on top), be sure to check out the NCAA women's team's Facebook page as well.

Note: Rather than shrinking and cropping the photos to 500 pixels wide as usual, I've kept them larger due to the "photo essay" nature of this post. To view things in their full glory, simply click on any of them to open a gallery.
