The icerink usually closes at the beginning of April

The balloon usually depends on the weather

Many thanks for that, we go on Thursday and are hoping to do both as never achieved either on all our previous visits. :)

The ice rink will stay in use until the weather warms up significantly (as it becomes too expensive to keep it frozen). But there is also a plan to bring in a new synthetic rink that doesn't need freezing and therefore would be open year-round. No dates for this yet, though. And yes, Panoramagique is still operating but, as ASW says, it is dependent on light winds to be able to go up.
