Snow in Summer at Jordan Valley Ice Park

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-- Young and old have a chance to play in the snow, in the middle of summer, at Jordan Valley Ice Park.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo.--Young and old have a chance to play in the snow, in the middle of summer, at Jordan Valley Ice Park.

At the Jordan Valley Ice Park kids of all ages are invited to climb, slide, and build snowmen in a mountain of snow created from ice shavings at the Medicom Ice Park.

Several times a day, Ice Park staff resurfaces the ice with a Zamboni, a machine which shaves irregularities and smoothes the ice. The Zamboni collects the shavings, which are normally dumped and allowed to melt.

Over the last few weeks, Ice Park staff allowed the normal ice depth to nearly double on the West Rink to about two inches. Saturday, staff will shave the ice back to its normal depth of 1.25 inches and haul the fluffy, white snow shavings outside for Summer SnowFest.

Summer Snowfest is free to the public and is sponsored by the Springfield Greene-County Park Board.
