As Grand Junction's long anticipated ice arena prepares to open
more than 100 new skaters prepare to take to the ice. The Glacier Ice Arena offers summer "Learn to Skate" classes for all skill levels. Parents can register their youngsters for class by calling 970-242-7465.
The ice arena will also host a free "off ice" figure skating camp for registered students. Figure Skating Director and Coach Cliff Patterson says it's best to teach kids how to jump and spin off the ice. The Glacier Ice Arena is slated to open July 15.
