Shinny action never stops on city’s outdoor rinks

There’s something particularly magical about a shinny game under the lights on an outdoor rink. This group took to the ice last week at Parc des Saints-Martyrs on Ave. Calixa-Lavallée, where, in the spring, the space becomes a tennis court.

Notwithstanding last weekend’s wacky weather, outdoor rinks across town have been welcoming shinny players night and day since before Christmas.

Whereas this winter’s lack of snow has been an issue for creating and maintaining ski trails, relatively consistent cold temperatures have made outdoor ice-making less of a challenge so far.
