PS: Did you know the snack bar is now open on the main floor — look for some exciting healthy food offers over the next few months
After nearly two weeks of round-the-clock work by our staff and supporting service partners, the rinks officially re-opened on July 6th with former NHL player Jim Thomson holding the first skate with one of his elite prospect camps. There is still much work to do including finishing up the dressing room renovations but the overall environment already looks high quality and the work done to update the look, feel and cleanliness of the facility is progressing well.
Next step is to complete the main floor renovation which includes building out the Everest Eagles Nest (snack bar), expand the administrative offices and add a new main floor dressing room.
There is also a lot of work going on up at the second floor as the Taps Grill area undergoes some major changes and the old Everest classrooms in the back are redone to add three new team rooms.
Voila — spread out the logo and the rink comes alive.
The ice resurfacing is almost done. The last main design activity is to paint the ice:
– a white base layer
– all the relevant lines
– cover in thin layer of ice
And it looks like a hockey rink!
With the sand levelled and all the cooling pipes in good working order, the next step is to saturate the sand so that it can become a frozen base for the ice and heavier equipment. The video shows the initial misting procedure used.
Renovations and upgrades at Everest Ice are in full swing. The big project focuses on resurfacing the North and South ice rinks which includes:
- melting the ice
- resetting the Boards
- re-leveling the sand base
- replacing various glass panels
- restoring the ice surface with new center ice logo
