Ice Technician Resources

Welcome to the hub for ice makers across Canada! We have videos, articles and other helpful information to assist curling ice technicians.

If you have any questions regarding ice making, please speak with Greg Ewasko [email protected].


We are pleased to share with you a video describing the installation of ice from start to finish. While this video was filmed at an arena installation, most of the tips and tricks of the trade are noted and shown here. We know you will find it interesting, informative and helpful as your club or ice technician begins their installation. Curling Canada is grateful to the World Curling Federation for their financial assistance to this project from their Development Assistance Programme.

If you would like to download the video to your computer, we recommend using KeepVid
