The town of Silverthorne North Pond Park Ice Rink is officially open. North Pond Park is located directly across the street from the Silverthorne Elementary School at Hamilton Creek Road and Highway 9. Free amenities include a warming hut, restrooms, parking and access to the best true pond skating in Summit County. Bring your own skates, hot chocolate and hockey sticks and play all day. Non-skaters can view the rink while staying warm inside the heated warming hut or relax on the dock while watching the fun. Skating is available from dawn to dusk and the warming hut is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If you are in the mood for organized pond hockey, make sure to check out the Colorado Pond Hockey Tournament which will be hosted at North Pond on Feb. 15-17. Visit www.colorado
