Outdoor Ice Skating in Colorado

Outdoor Ice Skating in Colorado

With a plethora of indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks, you can skate year-round in Colorado.

Thanks to the Rocky Mountains, Colorado is home to lots of outdoor ice rinks where you can enjoy the scenery as you enjoy this favorite winter sport. Most lakes began to freeze over in November and start opening up shortly after, through March, weather permitting.

Most resort towns have a frozen pond or lake that opens for ice skating each winter. Most of these rinks are completely outdoors, while some are partially covered with a roof. You can find both free rinks nd those that charge a small fee.  At most of these rinks ice skates are usually available for rent.

Colorado’s outdoor ice rinks bring back-to-basics joy to this classic winter pastime.
