Conditions and steps necessary for the preparation of an outdoor ice rink

Weather Conditions

  • The outside temperature must be at least -8°C during the day and between -10°C and -15°C at night
  • This temperature must be maintained for 3 or 4 consecutive days

Key Steps

  • Installation of rink boards
  • Preparation of a base made of compacted and flattened snow or ice
  • Watering and working the surface
  • Repeat the watering operations until a thickness of about 3 to 5 cm of ice is reached
  • Repairing cracks caused by temperature variations

After the watering stage, it is important to wait for the surface to freeze properly before skating on it. Respecting the work of the employees will greatly promote the creation of a beautiful ice surface.

Ice conditions are constantly fluctuating and can change during the course of a day. The Municipality must therefore deal with the elements of nature and its ups and downs. The preparation of outdoor ice is a craft that requires a lot of know-how.
