This year weather looks to be much better for this.
Say what?

As per the poster's question, mid March would be dicey, but like Kayen says, it all depends, the weather can vary by thirty degrees that time of year.

Well actually besides the odd week of cold spell, most of last winter was pretty disappointing from a cold weather loving person's stand point. Sorry. But yeah, march can either be -20c to +10 ... which means it's up in the air.

Most rinks in the southside say that they are opening at the end of November or start of December

That website is useless.

I'm also wondering if any rinks are open for the season yet?

David Perron tweeted that he saw people on the outdoor ice a day or two ago. He didn't say where because it's likely his local rink.

Drove by the outdoor rink tonight. Been up & running for a few days now. Outdoor skating in the near future. Can't wait! #bestpartofwinter

Yeah, Chris Wescott from the Oilers site tweeted that he went to an outdoor rink yesterday. Didn't say which one though...

I really wish the city would be more on top of the ODR schedules. Their current system of updating a crappy website once a year isn't working for me. :/

Buddy works there, said it'll be open today, but hopefully the warm weather didn't hinder it

Yea, I've come across that site a few times. The only problem is that most of the rink's websites haven't been updated in over a year.
