    Red Bull Crashed Ice course taking shape

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    When Mayor Jim Diodati got to the top of the Red Bull Crashed Ice course, he got that churning feeling in his stomach and could only think of one thing: “Imagine going down a roller coaster in skates!”

    Lucky for Diodati, he was only taking a tour of the 460-metre-long course, which starts at the Skylon Tower, along Murray St. and into the Niagara Pkwy. near the Edgewaters Tap & Grill.

    Organizers of the event — a combination of downhill skiing, hockey and boardercross — took media and local dignitaries for a Wednesday walkthrough of the twisting ice course, which is still under construction.

    From the Toronto Star:

    Okay, you’re up and moving gingerly on the new skates Santa brought, but can you stop?

    That question may arise in your mind this winter as you glide toward the brink of the Horseshoe Falls at Niagara Falls.

    The Rink at the Brink returned last month, but skaters this year are getting a true sense that they are skating near the edge of the roaring falls.

    From WGRZ Channel 2 in Buffalo:

    Ice skaters, sharpen your skates. The DeVeaux Ice Rink is now open.

    The rink, located at DeVeaux Woods State Park, was expected to open last month but was delayed so the park could acquire the necessary ice-making equipment.

    The lighted facility will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., weather permitting. According to Parks spokesperson Angela Berti, the rink is free and open to the public.
