Skating has ended at West Lake pond

The ice is too thin to skate on at West Lake State Wildlife Area.



The ice is thin and dangerous at West Lake State Wildlife Area.

For some it’s a welcome sign of spring but for others it’s a sad end to a special winter pastime many Grand Junction residents haven’t been able to enjoy in many years.

The pond was sprayed with water by local firefighters in December as part of a training exercise. The water froze, creating a smooth layer of ice on the pond.

The firefighters created a standard ice hockey rink, and cleared a spot for figure skaters to enjoy.

It was used extensively by area residents throughout the unusually cold month of January.
