Groups are separated according to age, with Tot classes for 3- to 5-year-olds and sessions for 6- to 12-year-olds or teens and adults. Students attend one 30-minute class every week and receive two open-skate passes. Click here for a list of class times.
Lake Forest Ice Palace
The pristine sheet of ice at Ice Palace’s outpost in Lake Forest serves as well-kept tundras ideal for diversions such as hockey, figure-skating, and public-skating sessions. Future NHL stars and misinformed basketball players can both sharpen their stick-handling skills in the facility's Learn to Play Hockey programs, whereas Learn to Figure Skate sessions teach beginners everything from forward and backward moves to entry-level jumps and spins. Held throughout the week, open-skating sessions allow the general public to let loose as couples slip on their skates, hold hands, and fearlessly tie each other's laces.
