Young speedsters will get more chance to test out their snow pants next year, with the expansion of the Ice Slide at the upcoming High on Ice festival.

At Monday night’s city council meeting, Council authorized $10,575 for a bigger and better five-slide hill in 2010.  The funds for the project will be added to the 2010 budget.

Councilor Larry Evans says last year’s design consisted of only two slides, so this year is sure to be a hit.

The slide will be carved at Centennial Park in Fort St. John, by a team of three people. It’s expected to take five days to construct.
