Everest Academy

Everest Ice


Effective June 15th, 2015, Everest has assumed responsibility for the ice rink facilities of what has been known as the Pavilion Sports Complex.  As such, we are pleased to introduce our new business, Everest Ice.  Everest Academy and Everest Ice will work together to deliver the best overall ice rink facility and related skills and team support programs in the GTA.

Equally exciting is the strong long term commitment from the new facility owner, Kartelle Corporation.  Kartelle is committed to helping Everest fully renovate the rink environment to create the best place to skate and train in the city — which has already started:


The start of the process to strip and then melt the ice so the surface can be restored to its original high quality setting


The shower area in the dressing rooms — already stripped so a complete remodeling can be done.

The following list identifies the many facility enhancements that are planned over the next few months and how you can follow critical parts of the renovation live on the web:

  1. Removal of ice and re-leveling sand floor for best ice surfaces in Canada
  2. Complete remake of the dressing rooms including floors, ceilings, venting and shower facilities
  3. Complete remake of the washrooms
  4. Replacement rubber flooring throughout including new matting in hallways and rinks
  5. Expansion of the main floor to include a full snack bar service
  6. Adding a small sitting lounge on the main floor
  7. Improved winter insulation to reduce extreme cold situations
  8. Opening of a new pro-shop to include skate sharpening, sticks, equipment cleaning
  9. Addition of a new hockey dressing room for female use
  10. General refresh of the environment including painting, cleaning and updated decor

Special Note — to provide the best possible skating environment, we will be closing the rinks from June 20th to July 4th so that the ice surfaces can be redone to restore them to the quality needed for proper training and competition.
