Warming House Closing Policy

  • The windchill factor is -20 degrees (dangerous wind) or below.

  • Unusually warm temperature (+35 degrees or above) soften the ice, making the rinks unsafe for skating.

  • We receive a snowfall of more than two inches. This could delay cleaning the rinks and opening the building.
