    Wow! Way to go everybody involved in getting this awesome project to this level. I lived in Invermere 20 years ago and would have given body parts to see this type of facility. Makes a truly wonderful part of the world even more special, regards John from Australia. ~

    Hi Dan

    The lifetime of the Whiteway each winter is purely dependent upon the weather. So far, our weather has been unseasonably warm and at this point, the ice doesn’t look nearly as inviting as you see in the above photos. But winter is only half over and we could, and likely will, still see cold temperatures before it’s over.

    Hopefully, you and your family will be able to enjoy the Whiteway when you come in March. Perhaps you can check back before you arrive and we will have a more definite answer for you. ~
