The brand-new, outdoor ice skating rink is now open at the new Winter Park Base Village, just in time for the New Year.

It’s a fun activity for the family after the young ‘uns have tired of skiing. Plus, there’s no need to leave the base. Enjoy hot cocoa, take a photo with the Winter Park Bear, watch the skiers come down the mountain, and let the kids skoot and skate away. There’s even a Zamboni that comes out in the afternoon to smooth out the ice!

There’s no charge to use the rink, but you’ll have to rent ice skates if you don’t have your own. You can rent skates at Winter Park Resort Rentals right across from the Zephyr Mountain Lodge.

You can also get your skate on at the covered rink at Cooper Creek Square in downtown Winter Park at Snow Mountain Ranch next to their sledding and tubing hill, or at Devil’s Thumb Ranch.
