Join us March 4 at 12 p.m. at the Trail Memorial Centre for a Photo with the New Olympia Ice Resurfacing Machine!

A new Olympia ice resurfacing machine is on its way to the Trail Memorial Centre (TMC) from Resurfice, a Canadian company based out of Elmira, Ontario. The new Olympia will be making its TMC ice debut on Wednesday, March 4 with guests from the Kootenays, Okanagan and Idaho who will be attending the Canadian Ice Training two-day Ice Maintenance Workshop. We invite the community to join the group at noon on March 4 to strike a pose on the ice with the new machine. Trail photographer, Mike Hockley, will be there to capture the momentous occasion. We encourage everyone to wear their favourite hockey jersey for the photo.

The TMC’s new Olympia machine’s look is sleek and modern with its adorned Trail black and orange colours, and has some amazing technology that will help save on energy and maintenance. It has a tighter turning radius than other manufacturers, which means the operators will be able to avoid rubbing the boards in the corners of the arena while getting closer to the edge. The new machine has a blade leveling system that adjusts the cutting depth automatically to ensure a consistent ice depth across the entire surface.

The new $150,000 machine will replace the blue Zamboni® ice resurfacing machine that was purchased in 1988, and will be a great companion to the TMC’s black Zamboni® machine, purchased in 2005.
