Cost Breakdown

  • Ice Chiller System - $1.8 Million
  • Event Level Upgrades - $1 Million
  • Wi-Fi - $250,000
  • LED Sport Lights - $200,000

Construction crews began working on the renovations following the conclusion of the Colorado Eagles championship hockey season. Larimer County partnered with the Colorado Eagles to provide the backing of a major overhaul.

The largest investment of these upgrades was the new Ice Chiller System that maintains the temperature level of the ice throughout the entire season. With miles of piping just 4 inches beneath the concrete arena floor, the new ice chiller system will result in significant cost savings with regards to the buildings utilities.
