I haven't been on ice skates since I was a kid.  Many many years ago.  So now that Lori and I are here, I'm willing to give it a try!  At least once, maybe twice! 

It takes lots of work for the providers to get enough layers of ice up to make for a good smooth service. These workers gladly do it because they know it is one thing that is traditional to Bozeman and that it sets it apart from other communities.

The plan is to have the rinks open by this coming weekend. You can check out the current status of the rinks and their locations at the bozeman website here.
