Hope it won't go away. Our family have great memories in Winter Lodge. My kid and her friends have wonderful time there.

So many fond memories of learning to skate there. Glad that it has survived all these years! Sad to hear Mr. Williams passed away. Whatever happened to Merre Jayne McFate? These folks were like family....
