Attention Drylands Arena Users!
The Arena is ready to open on October 21, 2018. We apologize for the delay in opening the facility this year. Due to a number of required upgrades, including the purchase and installation of a new chiller unit, the opening date of the arena was pushed back longer than usual. This was all in response to the Fernie Arena tragedy, and the resulting tightening of regulations by BC Technical Safety. We thank you for your patience.
The Village is pleased that the work was carried out as quickly as possible to get the facility open for the public. The new chiller unit is working much better than anticipated and requires a much smaller foot print as well as much less ammonia than the previous system. Staff is confident that the new chiller will result in reduced energy costs due to the enhance efficiencies the chiller allows.
