Ice Rink gets ready for the winter season

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

The Los Alamos County Ice Rink has gained a lot of notoriety. Not only is it one-of-a-kind – the local rink is the only refrigerated, outdoor ice arena in the state – but it has appeared on the big screen. The rink was featured in the movies “Brothers” as well as “Let Me In.”
Starting Friday, the public will be able to experience this noteworthy county facility themselves as the rink opens its doors to a new season. The first event will be an adult skate at 11:30 a.m. Friday, followed by public skating at 1:45 p.m. and a hockey tournament at 8 p.m.
Along with its traditional events, which include turkey bowling from 2-4 p.m. Nov. 20 and from 3-5 p.m. Nov. 21, as well as Skate with Santa, which will be from 2-4 p.m. Dec. 18 and from 3-5 p.m. Dec. 19, the arena staff is hosting a contest to celebrate its new Zamboni.
A new Zamboni was purchased, ice rink manager Dianne Marquez said, because like any other vehicle there comes a point where the cost of repairs exceeds the vehicle’s useful life. The former Zamboni was about 18-19 years old and its replacement cost $90,000.
