Visited here with several young kids (all of which had never been on skates). We had the arena almost completely to ourselves. They offer sleds to push the youngest of the group as well as walker-like supports to help the beginners.

They offer different activities for the whole range of skills. On the way out we were given the suggestion to get hockey pads (available from the front desk) for the little ones to help them stay dry, warm and come away with less bruises while learning.

Our group consisted of seven total people and there wasn't one of them that didn't enjoy the time we spent at the arena.

Wonderful! So glad you enjoyed the visit. And yes... the sleds and skate stands make it easy for the little ones and beginners to enjoy some ice time too.

We were able to get reservations at the last minute and did this at the end of one of our days in Steamboat. Not fancy per se, but are given a 20 minute period of "bumper cars on ice" - we really enjoyed. Call ahead for reservations.

Great public skating. This is the Olympic sized indoor rink with hockey programs and skating. Cleanest locker rooms I have ever seen in a hockey Arena, and I've been in allot in 40 years.
