I remember seeing a lovely temporary outdoor ice rink in Cadiz Xmas/winter 2004/2005.

I don't know, but what about up in the mountains where the ski runs are? You often find those sort of things together. Maybe Sierra Nevada.

There is an ice skating rink in the final statges of construction in Arroyo de la Miel. The complex also includes a heated indoor swimming pool.

Yeah it will be in Arroya like beachcomber said, just along from the station and turn right at Manferga roundabout, about 2 mins walk.
It will really be an impressive sports center, should be ready soon.

I reckon he wants it just to skate, unless he`s BIG JIM the goal minder.
Last time I saw the Canucks was in 73, when I used to live in Richmond BC.

I was just asking because my sheltered life about skiing outdoors has been shattered, when I learned that there are indoor skiing slopes....who knew? :scared: So I was wondering if there was some other use for ice rinks besides hockey or if hockey was now being played outdoors in warmer countries.

What made you leave paradise to lvie in spain?

They do have something called "pick-up hockey games" here for the older crowd. Both my husband jim (38) and my brother (over 40) play with a team. Perhaps there might be something there for you as well.
