Skiers take to the slopes at Boyce Park during their SnowFest 2015 on January 24, 2015. SnowFest 2015 runs from Jan. 23-25 and includes indoor and outdoor games, activities as well as the usual activities offered at the park.

Winter activities at two Allegheny County parks will close for the season Sunday.

Boyce Park ski slopes and snow tubing area and the South Park ice rink will thaw out for the season soon, according to an Allegheny County Parks Department news release.

The North Park ice rink closed earlier this week after an equipment malfunction.

At Boyce Park, skiing and snow tubing will operate as normal through Saturday as weather permits, the release said. On Sunday, skiing will end at 4:30 p.m. and two-hour tubing sessions will start at 9:30 a.m., noon and 2:30 p.m.

The Polar Bear Pond Skim will start at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, the release said. Skiers and snowboarders can wear a costume or summery garb while trying to skim across an ice-covered pond. Registration will begin at 2 p.m.

The South Park ice rink will operate as normal, weather permitting, with public skate sessions throughout the day.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
