My first top 100 place came last winter, but at the expense of hypothermia.
I was down on the farm marking out the slaloms last weekend (a killer hill run where we take a steep bank and make the competitors (including me!) run up and down about ten times. The ice was around 3 inches thick on the lake under walk the plank (if you don't know Toughguy take a look at www.toughguy.co.uk) and easily withstood a concrete block being thrown onto it.
Hopefully over the last week or so it will have melted a little, but I can envisage hypothermia again. If you are coming down to the race, make sure you have warm clothes for after and get something hot inside you as soon as you can after the race
