Steamboat Springs, Colorado is home to one of the best Olympic-sized ice skating rinks in the northwest. A fully enclosed arena provides both the professional and novice a chance to enjoy the wonders of ice skating no matter what the weather. It's also the only arena in Colorado that has bumper cars that you can drive on the ice!

Ice skating can be enjoyed as an individual, as a couple, or in groups. With a little practice and a lot of energy, any one can perform spins, jumps and other types of moves on the ice. The freedom of movement as you glide across frozen water is exhilarating.

Ice skating is great exercise for both body and mind. Unlike walking, which most people do without even thinking, ice skating – for most of us – still requires significant thought and coordination.

Let loose and release your inner disco dancer during Rock On Ice, when the lights go down and the disco balls come out to the sounds of music that'll make you want to boogie.

Take the opportunity to join a hockey match during one of the many scheduled sessions, or come for a public skate to simply enjoy the ice.
