Park City’s caretakers conduct biweekly sonar readings across the indoor rink’s surface to pinpoint any unsmooth areas, banishing bumps through scrupulous ice maintenance for effortless gliding. After lacing up a pair of gleaming skates, skaters can zigzag or pirouette across the subzero surface freely, forging their own path, racing fellow skaters, or seeing who can sketch the most convincing Wayne Gretzky into the ice. Open-skate sessions can last between 1.5–6 hours, with afternoon-to-evening sessions taking up an average of 2–3 hours. Clients should consult the schedule for open ice sessions, and skate forces two- or four-strong should dress in comfortable layers and avoid clothes that restrict movement, such as wooden skinny jeans or Greco-Roman wrestlers posing as scarves.
Though Park City Ice Arena sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Park City Ice Arena
An olympic-size sheet of ice provides hours of entertainment for the individuals that convene at Park City Ice Arena. Guests can lace up their skates and learn proper techniques during hockey and ice skating lessons. A special public skate session – Cosmic Skate – darkens the arena before illuminating the ice with colored lights. Technicians use sonar to measure the ice's thickness, ensuring that the rink is between 1.25 and 1.5 inches thick. The arena is also available for birthday parties and other events, with activities such as ice skating, curling, broomball, and sled hockey.
