Ice arena open
The Casper Ice Arena has opened its doors to the public. It has been under construction to replace its 35-year-old ice rink refrigeration system. The construction project, which began in March, included relocating the ice plant from the Casper Event Center to the Casper Ice Arena. Additionally, the former sand-based rink has been completely renovated with over 13 miles of new refrigeration piping and enclosed within a layer of concrete.
Join the Casper Ice Arena’s public skate on Sunday November 22 from 1 to 3 p.m. for a special afternoon of ice skating at the rink.
The Casper Skating School will be starting ice skating lessons on Monday, November 23 from 5:30 to 6 p.m. at the Casper Ice Arena. Each skater will receive five weeks of ice skating lessons from Casper Skating School instructors. Additionally, each student will receive five public skating punch-passes to practice outside of their designated lesson plan. Limited registration is available on ActiveCasper.com.
For additional information about the Casper Ice Arena or the upcoming ice skating season, please call the Casper Ice Arena at 235-8484 or visit www.casperwy.gov.
