While skaters glide around the ice on hockey or figure skates, they listen to festive music, enjoy the sunshine or starlight of the outdoors, and soak in the glimmer of Christmas lights. Open-skating sessions take place daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. See the rink’s schedule for further information.
Resort Center Ice Skating Rink
Gleaming under the pale light of the winter sun, blades slice along the smooth surface of Resort Center Ice Skating Rink, sending icy dust spraying in their wake. Surrounded by the quaint, Bavarian-style walls of the Village shopping center, the outdoor oval beckons guests wishing to discover what ice skating was like before indoor rinks confined it and ice sharks rendered neighborhood ponds off-limits. Periodically throughout each public-skate session, a zamboni buffs the subzero sheet to present skaters with a surface as smooth and gentle as the festive tunes filling the air. Guests circle around hand-in-hand, remarking on the surrounding Christmas lights and fir trees while fledgling skaters focus on their footing and grasp complimentary ice-skate trainers for balance.
Between pirouettes or mad dashes across the rink, hands can warm up with steaming mugs of hot chocolate in the skate house.
