Public Skate Photos

With two great ice facilities we have lots of options. 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 Lewis Ice Arena - located at The ARC; the Lewis Ice Arena 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.

Private Lessons -  Private lessons for beginning-level skaters are available during public skating and freestyle sessions. 

Attention - We highly recommend helmets for all skaters! We do not provide any at the rink (any helmet will work: ski, bike, hockey, etc).

Winter Wonderland › Additional Info

Sledding and skating all in one spot!? Sounds too good to be true, huh?

The Aspen Recreation Center’s Winter Wonderland features all these great outdoor activities that are perfect for après ski or just an afternoon family outing.

Take a ride on the “Whoa Nelly” Sledding Hill. Grab your friends and hang on to your hats! See who can race down the hill first – winner gets his or her sled carried back up the hill by the other racers!

Whether you have fresh new snow or are sledding down the dips and jumps created by other sledders, you’re going to have fun. Bring your own equipment and sled for FREE! Otherwise, rent a sled from us for only $5.

After you have finished your ride down the sledding hill, strap on your skates and try out the new outdoor skating rink– the ARC-tic Pond. During dusk the lights turn on and the twinkling trees help give it that magical, nighttime ambiance.

As soon as we can get the Ice Pond Open (colder temperatures required) - "Skate Under the Lights" - The ARC-tic Skating Pond is open until 9:00pm (Monday - Friday), until 8:00pm (Saturday), and until 6:00pm (Sunday).
