Resort Center Ice Skating Rink is a newly renovated outdoor ice oval tucked at the base of Park City Mountain Resort under a Bavarian-inspired peaked roof. Before each public skate, a zamboni buffs the frozen sheet of water to present skaters with a smooth skating surface. After strapping on rented skates, guests carve cursive poems into the gleaming ice or keep one hand on the green handrail while glissading around the rink’s perimeter. Wind flows freely through guests’ tresses as Christmas trees and festive lights dance in peripheral vision and skates push forth to the beat of merry tunes. Guests’ hands can warm up with steaming mugs of hot chocolate in the skate house, and the mittens of fledgling skaters’ can grasp complimentary ice-skate trainers to keep little legs from going noodly as a prog-rock guitar solo. Public skating runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
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.
