Silverthorne North Pond Park Ice Rink is Open

The Town of Silverthorne North Pond Park Ice Rink officially opened on Thursday with more than double the ice surface of previous years as crews have cleared a larger area in preparation of the town hosting the Pabst Colorado Pond Hockey Tournament at the park in February.

North Pond Park is located directly across the street from the Silverthorne Elementary School at Hamilton Creek Road and Colorado Highway 9. Free amenities include a warming hut, restrooms, parking and access to true pond skating.

Non-skaters can view the rink while staying warm inside the heated warming hut or relax on the dock.

Skating is available from dawn to dusk and the warming hut is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The ice is maintained by the town's Public Works Department.

For more information, call the Silverthorne Recreation Center at (970) 262-7370, or visit

Engine Number 9 Arrives in Breckenridge Today

Engine Number 9, built in the 1880', originally served the Denver to Breckenridge route over Boreas Pass delivering mail and people,  arrived in Breckenridge today.  The fully restored steam engine will reside at the Rotary Snow Park at the south end of Breckenridge.  Pictured here is the engine still on the truck that hauled it in.  It will be placed on the tracks in the next few days.  Pretty exiciting to see an 1880's engine that once steamed through Breckenridge back in place.
