When was the last time you went ice skating? Dare to be a kid again.
Winter Park & Fraser offers a few ways to put your vacation on ice, literally. Stop by the ice skating rink at Cooper Creek Square for a free spin. Rent your gear at one of the local retail shops for about $10, or bring your own for even more economical entertainment.
The "Icebox" skating rink at the Fraser Valley Sports Complex offers public free skate, as well as ice skating and hockey programs. Skates are available for rent on-site. For specific prices and details contact the Grand Park Community Recreation Center at 970.726.8968.
Snow Mountain Ranch/YMCA of the Rockies is a little further down the road (just 15 minutes from Winter Park); however, there is so much to do at the Y it is well worth the extra couple of minutes! After renting skates and taking a few spins on the rink, you and your family can go sledding, craft building, swimming, etc. since all the activities are included in the day pass fee (approximately $15).
Practice your triple axel at Devil's Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa on their private outdoor rink. Ice skate rentals are just $5 per person and there is a $5 fee for non-Ranch guests.
FREE ice skating lessons are available from 4-5p daily during the season at Winter Park Resort. Bring your own skates or rent them near the Village Ice Rink. The outdoor ice rink is open from 10a-10p daily, conditions permitting.
