Why won’t Ice Castles return to Colorado?

Local News

DILLON, Colo. (KDVR) — The popular Ice Castles in Dillon will not return this year due to renovations at Town Park and the inability to move the location from Dillon to Silverthorne.

“We were exploring the possibility of a move from Dillon to Silverthorne, but for various logistical reasons that unfortunately did not work out. As with any large scale event, there are a lot of factors to consider when determining a new location. Land, access to water, adequate drainage, parking, and traffic flow are all examples of factors that weigh into each decision for Ice Castles,” shared Melissa Smuzynski, spokesperson for Ice Castles.

According to the website, Ice Castles will be in these places for 2021-22:

  • Minnesota
  • New Hampshire
  • New York
  • Utah
  • Wisconsin

Smuzynski said that while the location didn’t work out for this winter, Ice Castles could be back in Colorado as early as winter 2022-23.

Last season, the Ice Castles opened in December and closed in March.
