Whistler Ice Skating :: Family Fun
A truly Canadian winter pastime, ice skating in Whistler is great winter fun for the entire family.
Glide along to music under sparkling lights at Whistler Olympic Plaza’s outdoor skating rink or head to the Meadow Park Sports Centre arena for indoor ice skating. When winter temperatures drop, experience jaw-dropping views while skating on one of Whistler’s beautiful lakes.
Skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza
Imagine skating outdoors with your family and friends, surrounded by the breathtaking scenery, the twinkle of festive lights and the Olympic rings.
Each winter, the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW), in partnership with the Province of British Columbia, transforms Whistler Olympic Plaza into skating rinks. With room for 150 skaters at a time, skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza is as intimate as it is spectacular.
Skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza usually opens early December, depending on weather & temperatures.
Olympic Plaza may need to close unexpectedly due to weather conditions. For up to date information, (604) 935-PLAY, press 3.
Whistler Ice Skating on Alta or Green Lake
When it’s cold enough, out come the snow shovels to clear a place for ice skating on Alta or Green Lakes in Whistler. Please note, there is no provider in Whistler whereby you can rent skates, so guests will have to use their own and everyone skates at their own risk.
