Ice Time

Victorians enjoying the ice rink in front of the Empress Hotel in Victoria, BC...
A rare chance to skate the real thing in Victoria...
Victorians are being treated to a rarity... authentic outdoor winter skating on a 60’ by 90’ covered rink, courtesy of the Empress Hotel.

In the past, local malls have periodically featured seasonal rinks where the 'ice' was a type of high tech plastic. The Empress is doing it old school with the real deal -- genuine ice.

It must be popular. This photo was taken on an otherwise slow downtown Monday night and there was a solid line up of people waiting to take their turn on the rink.
