In order to keep the ice cold enough for skating, the rink typically stays between a chilly 35 to 50 degrees throughout the year. We always encourage you to dress for the cold, wearing layers and thick socks to keep your toes warm. Once you begin to skate around, you will quickly warm up and acclimate to the cold. Scarfs, hats and gloves can always make your ice skating experience more enjoyable, as they keep you cozy and comfortable. If you are attending a private lesson, hockey lesson, or a learn-to-skate program, you may be advised to dress differently by your instructor or coach.
