excessive snow buildup is a necessary evil of hockey. even at the pro arenas, after about 30 mins of straight hockey will get a big buildup of snow everywhere. i've played on rexall place ice and, while not as good as it used to be, snow buildup happens.

if the rink was colder, the ice gets harder and ruts become a problem if the zamboni doesn't do a good job and even if it does, chances are the water won't have enough time to freeze before people get on the ice.

i think the solution, but don't quote me on it, is that if the rink had dehumidifiers, the ice becomes more consistent and excessive snow doesn't become as much of a problem. the drier the air, the quicker and smoother the ice freezes.
