Due to the high cost of renting ice in North Bay, Sturgeon Falls and other surrounding areas might be seeing more out of town teams at their rinks.

According to a report, the City of North Bay would have to charge $570 per hour for winter ice rentals at Memorial Gardens and $189 per hour at other arenas to recover all of its costs. Following a recent review of the city’s ice rental fees full-cost recovery is not being recommended, instead staff is suggesting the city phase in a hike over the next two years.

Adult prime time ice rental fees at Memorial Gardens would reach a little more than $190 in 2018, and around $175 at Pete Palangio and West Ferris. At the Sturgeon Falls arena adult prime time ice is $125, but from 6:30am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday that cost drops to $80.
