This year the skating season will be extended to January 29, 2012, to coincide with the U.S. Figure Skating Championships taking place at the HP Pavilion January 22 – 29, 2012. Olympic gold medalist, Kristi Yamaguchi, who again was instrumental in bringing Downtown Ice back to San Jose, will be at the Opening Ceremony at 5:00 pm on Monday, November 21.
