Idaho Ice Skating

Idaho Ice Skating

by Mike Christie

With even the National Hockey League going outside for games these days with their annual Winter Classic, it’s no wonder outdoor ice skating has become a growing trend. Idaho offers many beautiful opportunities to get outside and skate, from city rinks to mountain lakes to the largest man-made rink in the Pacific Northwest, there’s an ice skating option for everyone.

Some highlights include the following:

Christina Potters Outdoor Rink – This rink, located in Ketchum, Idaho and spanning a massive 2 acres, is the largest of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. With free hockey gear, skates, and goals, this is a great place for a pick up game with some friends.

Round Lake State Park – This rink, located near Sandpoint, Idaho, is situated on Round Lake and has a speed skating and regular ice rink maintained by park staff. They do not have skates for rent here, however.

A full list of ice skating opportunities can be found here on Visit Idaho’s website.
