Reno Tahoe’s outdoor ice rinks bring excitement and joyful ice skating to this classic winter pastime. This activity also inspires everyone to embrace the festive season. This family-friendly activity is the ultimate way to spend a winter afternoon. So bundle up, save room for plenty of hot chocolate, and head to one of Reno or Lake Tahoe’s ice rinks for a day of merry memory-making.
If not everyone in your group feels like skiing or snowboarding, there are plenty of other family-friendly activities to choose from at Lake Tahoe ski resorts. Enjoy music and fun each day and night at Heavenly Village’s open-air skating rink in South Lake Tahoe. Heavenly Village’s open-air skating rink is open from November 1 until the Easter holiday. Lace-up your skates at the Village at Northstar for some turns around their ice skating rink which is surrounded by fire pits. The wintry, fairy-tale-like setting is enough to put anyone on cloud nine.
Rink at THE ROW in downtown Reno is new to the winter fun this year. Rink at THE Row opens in November and will be open seven days a week, as long as weather permits. Enjoy skating surrounded by the casino lights of Eldorado, Circus Circus and Silver Legacy, or just enjoy the view with a nice hot toddy. There are also nearby restaurants at THE ROW. Enjoy authentic Asian noodles from Pho Mein in the Eldorado or a charbroiled rib eye from Cafe Central in the Silver Legacy. At THE ROW, you are never too far from a good meal, entertainment or attractions in downtown Reno.
Another cool place to show off your ice skating skills in Reno is The Ice Rink at Grand Sierra Resort. At 8,000 square feet, there is plenty of room to skate to your heart’s content. After taking your turning and twirling, check out the heated pool, hot tubs, fire pits, full-service bar and a full menu of seasonal goodies such as soup and s’mores. The Ice Rink is open to hotel guests, locals and anyone else who would like to enjoy some wintry fun.
