Palouse Ice Rink Closes a 20-year Chapter In Moscow History: Ringing In The New Ice Rink

Skaters included Lillyann Morford (coached by Emily Viehouser), performing to “I wish you a Merry Christmas,” Sophia Tsiklauri, performing to “Snowman,” Emily Viehouser, performing to “The Christmas Song,”and Levani Tsiklauri, performing to “Russian Dance from the Nutcracker.”
The show was a perfect celebration to end two decades of skating in a well-loved facility that sparked a surprising community passion for skating.
