Breslow offers chance to escape the heat

Nebraska students skate during an event at the John Breslow Ice Hockey Center. The facility is offering reduced admission based on summer temperatures.

As temperatures approach the century mark in the first heat wave of the summer, Nebraska’s John Breslow Ice Hockey Center is offering a chance for Huskers to chill out.

Through the summer, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln facility is offering admission to public skate sessions at discounted rates based on the outdoor temperature. The cost will be reduced by $1 for every degree beyond 97 degrees, culminating in free admission when temperature gauges reach the 102 mark.

Regular admission for public skates — which are offered nearly every day — is $6 for adults and $5 for children. Skate rental, which is $3, is not included in the summer promotion.

Admission to the John Breslow Ice Hockey Center is open to the public. For more information, including a calendar outlining public skate times, click here.
