After many hours of hardwork and cooperation between Kinnaird Youth Indoor Skatepark and Rossland Skatepark Association their is now a place to shred indoors this winter in Castlegar. A 5ft miniramp with flat land space makes the winter seems more bearable for Kootenay skateboarders. Along with Salmo and Nelson, Castlegar can now keep skaters active through the long winter months.
On Wednesday Dec 28th KYIS will be open from 10am to 1pm. Skaters will be required to wear a helmet and if under 10 have knee and elbow pads. A waiver will need to be signed and it is free to ride.
