It was just like any Friday morning. I went for my morning walk around the neighborhood. I played with Jane and Anna next door before my mom called me inside for my morning nap. I found my favorite spot in the sun by the window and curled up to catch a few “zzz’s” before the mail arrives. I woke up to my mom packing the suitcases. Oh no! I know what this means – I’m heading to the kennel.

Maintaining pristine ice for the nation’s only lagoon skating rink isn’t easy. It takes a team of RiverWalk Resort employees to keep the ice in tip-top shape for skaters all winter long. Starting in November, the RiverWalk’s 167,000-gallon outdoor lagoon swimming pool is transformed into a perfect sheet of ice with the help of a complex network of tubes carrying super-cooled glycol.
There is more to Lincoln than just world-class family skiing. Whether you need a break from skiing or you’re a non-skier, there's tons to do in the Western White Mountains and beyond during the winter months.
