The Blewett Conservation Society and the Regional District of Central Kootenay are pleased to announce that the outdoor skating rink at the Morning Mountain recreation area is open for skating.

A soft launch of the rink attracted skaters throughout January but now the rink is officially open and is already very popular. A large group of youngsters from Nelson enjoyed a skating party on Jan. 26. Later, eager hockey players practised drills and other enthusiasts came to skate outdoors on the rink.

Completion of the rink was achieved by the hard work of many local volunteers from Blewett and Nelson region and RDCK Area E director Ramona Faust. The project was made possible by funding from the RDCK parks department and other donors.

Skaters from throughout the region are invited to enjoy the rink while the cold weather lasts.
