Ice Skating Winter Outdoor Activities

Rip across a frozen pond like Wayne Gretzky. Try a figure-skating-inspired spin. Or glide hand-in-hand with a sure-footed pal. Whatever your ice skating style, you’ll feel super Canadian doing it. • Pond skating: Hear the slice of skate blades on the thick, frozen ice of a mountain lake or prairie pond? That’s what Canada sounds like. • Only here: Try out the “fastest ice in the world” during public skate times at Calgary’s Olympic Oval, where Olympic speed skaters train.
