NHL-sized rink proposed for Jasper National Park

Skaters might be able to take to the ice soon with a view of the Canadian Rockies.

Businessman Rob Olson has proposed building a NHL-sized outdoor rink in Jasper National Park, according to the Jasper Fitzhugh.

Olson took his inspiration for the idea from a similar rink that was built at Sun Peaks Resort in British Columbia. Olson expects the Jasper rink would cost $250,000 to build.

Jasper town councillors were set to hear Olson’s pitch on Tuesday.
