The City of Boise made the difficult decision to close Idaho IceWorld in November 2020 out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our employees and community members, as well as to realize significant cost savings during a challenging financial time. The winter season is our primary season for revenue generation, and without it, the operation of the facility becomes a serious and significant financial burden to the city. While a difficult decision, the long-term closure was the responsible thing to do for community and employee safety as well as financial responsibility. The decision was not made lightly, but city leaders agreed that the closure was necessary.
IceWorld is scheduled to open and resume operations in October 2021. At this time, there are no plans for programming at Idaho IceWorld during the summer of 2021. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
