If there’s one thing Albertan’s know, it’s winter.  Like the rest of Canada, much of the year out here is spent buried under layers of snow, sleet and ice; scraping frost off your windshield and wrapping chains around your tires.  The temperatures begin to drop in late fall and before you know it, it’s a winter wonderland all around you.  Like most Canadians though, people out here in Valleyview have learned to embrace winter and relish in all the fun that can go hand and hand with frozen lakes and mountains of snow.
A town known for its wide range of outdoor recreational activities, Valleyview has something to offer everyone no matter the season: from cycling, hiking, camping and golfing in the summer; to skiing, hunting, and snowmobiling in the winter.  If the spring thaw has you already yearning for just one more day of winter sports, never fear.  The Polar Palace indoor ice rink is open year-round to satisfy those not quite ready to surrender their skates for the season.  Offering ice time for figure skating, hockey, and curling, there’s a little something for everyone at the Polar Palace ice rink.  Located at the intersection of 44th and 52nd avenue, the Polar Palace is home to Valleyview’s hockey team, the Valleyview Jets, and also the Red Willow Curling Club.  Call today for public skate times.
In May, the Polar Palace is hosting two notable activities open to both people locals and visitors alike.  On May 16th, come down at 1 pm for the annual Valleyview Clean-up Blitz, a time to show your community support and work together to clean-up the town and show how Valleyview can really sparkle.  There will be a free BBQ following the clean-up and free swim passes given out to everyone who attends.  Starting May 9th until June 13th, the Polar Palace is hosting Girl Power, a positive, inclusive, and fun sports program for girls aged 9-13.  It provides an opportunity for girls to decide as a group which sports they’d like to participate in and helps to promote and encourage an active and healthy lifestyle from an early age.  Registration is only $40 for 6 weeks.  Sign up your little one and then hit the rink yourself for a healthy dose of ice time.
When you’re done perfecting your figure 8s, don’t forget to cozy up in one of our comfortable, affordable accommodations right here in Valleyview.  Our modern rooms offer a wide range of amenities for the weary traveler and seasoned skater.  Book with us today and we’ll find something suited just for you.
