Everything to Know About the New Idaho Springs, Colorado Ice Rink
Where Is the Ice Rink?
If you’re looking for a brand new Colorado ice rink, then Idaho Springs is the spot! Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District (CCMRD) Presents The Frozen Fire Ice Rink at Digger Field located just off Interstate 70, less than 40 minutes from Denver. The rink is on the grounds of the town’s beloved football field where games were played up until recent years. The ice rink is an exciting new chapter for Digger Field!
What Is the Rink Made Of?
The Frozen Fire Ice Rink is unlike any other Colorado ice rink. Instead of traditional ice, the surface is a synthetic material known as Glice. Over 2,000 rinks in 85 countries have been built using Glice. Most skaters say they can’t even tell the difference from skating on natural ice. Professional hockey players, figures skaters, and countless recreational skaters have endorsed Glice. The rink is also very eco-friendly. It requires minimal maintenance, it is 100% recyclable and nontoxic, and it creates significantly fewer emissions than natural ice rinks. Most excitingly, Glice is not dependent on temperature and can be skated on year-round.
Are Safety Precautions Being Taken?
Outdoor recreation is more important now than ever. Local health officials have supported the ice rink as a safe option for outdoor activity. Outdoor activities present a lower risk of exposure to the virus. Exercise is also a proven remedy for depression and other mental health challenges. Online reservations are required, so plan ahead to visit our Colorado ice rink. Masks will be required at all times. Social distancing will be encouraged throughout the area and the maximum capacity for each ice skating session will be 10 individuals.
How Much Does It Cost?
Admission for each session will be $7 per person. Each session will be 60 minutes. There will be 15 minutes in between sessions to allow for disinfection. Skate rentals will be available for $3.
