Frisco’s skating and night skiing halted by week of warm weather

FRISCO – Spring has come – putting an end to some winter activities in Frisco.

Frisco officials announced Tuesday they are closing the town’s ice skating pond and Nordic night skiing for public safety reasons.

This week’s warm weather has made the ice on Meadow Creek Pond, behind Safeway, unsafe for the town’s grooming equipment, said Frisco Community Relations Director Linda Lichtendahl.

The warm temperatures are also responsible for ending the night skiing at the Frisco Nordic Center, she said.

“At night, you can’t see if it’s icy,” Lichtendahl said. “The snow conditions change so much on the trail, depending on where the sun hits. You can see that when you’re skiing along in the day, but at night you can’t.”

This was the town’s first year offering night-skiing at the Nordic center.

“Night skiing has been a success, and we hope to bring it back next season around November or December when it gets darker earlier,” said Therese Dayton, who operates the Frisco Nordic Center with her husband, Gene.

The Frisco Nordic Center will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the remainder of the season.The Nordic center likely will close for the season April 6, Therese Dayton said.
