The Forks opened its popular skating rink under the Canopy on Friday — a sign that the cold temperatures are here to stay.

“We are welcoming winter with open arms and it’s not even December,” said Paul Jordan, The Forks’ chief operating officer. “With the rink open under the Canopy, a 1.2 kilometre skating trail to come, and warming huts just being unveiled, we are expecting an exciting winter ahead.”

The rest of the Arctic Glacier Winter Park will open shortly, and includes  an Olympic-sized skating rink near Scotiabank Stage, a toboggan run, and professionally designed snowboard facility.

Skates can be rented for $2.50 for children and seniors, and $4.50 for adults at Iceland Skate Rentals adjacent to the skate changing area.
