As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads across the U.S. and begins to have an increased impact on our communities, we want to let you know that Glacier Ice Arena will be temporarily closed due to government mandates.
First and foremost, Glacier’s number one priority is the safety and well-being of our staff, clientele, families, and the communities in which we live and work. All spring programs have been put on hold until we have more information. Although the building will be closed, we will work diligently to collect pertinent information and disseminate in all forms of communication to be sure you are up to date with future activities.
Glacier will monitor the evolving situation and make decisions to ensure we can maintain the health and well-being of our employees and all our skating families.
We will utilize our website to post updates and changes moving forward.
