Yost Ice Arena

Named after Fielding H. Yost, University of Michigan's legendary football coach and athletic director, Yost Ice Arena has worn many hats in its 90 years of existence. It opened in 1923 as the country's first field house, hosting track events and basketball games until being converted into an ice arena in 1973. Although it has benefited from a bounty of technological and aesthetic improvements since then—including improved seating, better windows, and an upgraded audio system—it still retains its old-fashioned feel, being affectionately referred to as the "old barn" by players, according to a feature by USA Today. "Yost offers one of the most stirring hockey experiences in the country," the article continues, "because of the intimacy and charm of its 6,637-seat rink and the zaniness and zealousness of its fans."

Today, when players aren't battling it out in a hockey game and figure skaters aren't perfecting their pirouettes, the arena opens for public skating. Entire families can rent skates to glide along the ice, warming up periodically with hot chocolate, coffee, hot dogs, and popcorn at the student-run concession stand.
