Story opportunity: Skating through winter


What rinks are open this season? We’re looking for rinks in Minneanpolis, St. Paul and Roseville —

The Minneapolis and St. Paul Park and Recreation boards should have a lot of the information.

• St. Paul has just opened its third refrigerated rink – what’s that like?

• Roseville has a big ice arena.

• What are the hours and admission fees?

• Where can you rent skates?

• When are downtown rinks open?

The Star Tribune has a story on suburban rinks closing, with lots of examples.
