- 1989: inauguration of the new facility by Prefect Roland Hodez and creation of the Prémanon curling club.
- 2009: creation of an association offering figure skating lessons.
By the mid-2000s, the skating rink was starting to look outdated, leading Prémanon council to consider its future. It was a natural step for the Station des Rousses federation of local councils to include it in discussions on the museum as it developed the concept of the Espace des Mondes Polaires.
Totally transformed to blend into the polar ambience with large-scale illustrations depicting the ice floes inhabited by polar bears, the only ice rink in the Jura is a fun and sporting counterpart to the Espace des Mondes Polaires museum.
