The Stillwater community ice rink will likely not be open this year due to the unusually warm weather. As we approach January with temperatures still above freezing, the season will be two thirds over before it's cold enough to produce ice. In the event the weather changes and we experience a stretch of weeks below freezing, we will attempt to make ice on top of the blacktop, but we still need snow to make the banks. In the meantime, there are many indoor rinks in the area that offer “public skate and family skate” times including rinks in Saratoga, Clifton Park, Scotia-Glenville, Albany Airport, Troy and at some of the local colleges. Hopefully we will have a better season next year - The Zamboni Brothers
