Help Raise the Rink

The Palouse Ice Rink is leading efforts to enhance and expand our local ice facility. The current rink was intended as a temporary facility and after 16 seasons and thousands of smiles the PIR Board is targeting building a permanent structure rink in the spring 2019.

What people are saying

The development of a new ice rink will provide a venue for families to participate in ice sports as well as providing a recreational economic driver for our community.

The ice rink and its expansion contributes important economic impacts to the Palouse region. It attracts hundreds of visiting hockey players and their families to the area each season who spend generously in area motels, retail, and dining establishments.

Expanding Science On Ice

The ice rink can be a great place to learn about science. Students can learn about the properties of water — how a Zamboni smooths the ice. They can put Newton’s second law of motion to practice — using a slingshot to slide different size hockey pucks across the ice to see firsthand how the […]
