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
