According to the CSRD, who manage the rinks, both of the openings are subject to weather and a change in conditions could lead to them being closed again.

The temperature is expected to remain below freezing in the Shuswap until Sunday, Jan. 19, with warmer daytime highs and a chance of flurries returning by Monday.
