The outdoor rink in Fernie will be operating again this year.
The rink was installed last year after the tragedy at the Memorial Arena left the community without a public skating surface.
City of Fernie communications coordinator Alycia McLeod says crews are working to get the rink ready.
“Work is well underway to get the ice surface ready for the 2018-19 season,” says McLeod. “This week we will have community volunteers along with city crews working to flood the ice and we are anticipating to have the outdoor arena by mid-December, weather permitting.”
The NHL sized rink was donated by the Calgary Flames Foundation and was set up and maintained by a number of volunteers.
