Public Skating

The Aspen Ice Garden was renovated in 2013 to improve the overall appearance and function of the arena. The Ice Garden has a single surface (85' x 185') that has been referred to by many figure and hockey skaters alike as one of the best-maintained surfaces in the region. Hours of operation are dependent on programming. The Aspen Ice Garden is closed from May 31st-September 1st. All skating activities will be held at the Lewis Ice Arena during this time.

The Lewis Ice Arena - located at The ARC was completed in the Spring of 2003 and includes an NHL regulation-size ice surface (85' x 200'), grandstand seating for 450, and a comfortable lobby. A skate shop offers precision sharpening and skate rentals.

Public Skating - Admission fee required at the Lewis Ice Arena inside the Aspen Recreation Center. An additional $3 Skate Rental Fee is charged for Non-Pass Holders. Helmets are recommended. Please see calendar links on left for rink schedule.
