After being forced to close this week due to the snow storm, the Los Alamos County Ice Rink will re-open today at 3 p.m. It will be open for public skating from 3-5:30 p.m. 

Los Alamos County, which operates the rink, has been working hard to remove the snow from the ice surface and the surrounding walkway since 22 inches of snow fell between Monday and Tuesday. 

In addition to public skating, the rink plays host to various hockey events each week. Next weekend, the rink will host the Outdoor Nuclear Shootout, a college hockey tournament featuring the University of New Mexico, Dallas Baptist, Northern Arizona and Nebraska. 

The Los Alamos County Ice Rink is the only refrigerated NHL regulation size, outdoor skating rink in New Mexico.
