Ice Skating Winter Outdoor Activities

The crisp winter air brings a glow to your face as you glide across the frozen lake. Your skates provide a sense of freedom like no other as you fly across the ice at exhilarating speeds. In winter, you can skate just about anywhere in Alberta. Our climate creates the ultimate outdoor skating experience. Attempt a camel spin on a freshly cleared pond. Show up at an open-air rink with a hockey stick for an impromptu game of shinny. Whether it’s a mountain lake at midnight in the Canadian Rockies, or rinkside at a professional NHL hockey game in Calgary or Edmonton, ice skating is ice magic every time.
