Want to Skate Outside – Boischatel has a Great Rink

In Quebec, far from the modern amphitheatres (but there is supposedly one coming isn’t there) and the perfect skating rinks in the big leagues, skaters give their 110% day and night. Armed with simple water hoses, many shovels, and solid motivation, citizens have created some of the most beautiful ice rinks.

It is impossible to do all of them alone but for four years, locals have been able to maintain an impressive ice surface with an incredible sea-view in Boischatel.

To make this happen, many people muck in and get the job done.

This is a local project with friends, family, kids.
At holiday time, the rink is often besieged by skaters.

Sometimes, kids are asked to go out in winter but now, the parents beg to make them come inside.

An undoubted advantage of spending time and energy making an exterior ice rink: a work conflict in the NHL will affect you very little.

People are happy that the lock-out is over, but it won’t change a thing. The kids are always outside anyway. Having to maintain the ice makes up most of the winter schedule.

The most simple things are often the most beautiful and fun. Take some time for yourself and go play outside.
