Winter On the Ice
The outdoor ice rink is one of the few year-round rinks and the home of the Sun Valley Ice Shows in the summer months. Skate rentals, group and private lessons, and a full service Pro Shop on site. For Group & Private Lessons, please call 208-622-2194 or E-mail:email@example.com
The Christina Potters Ice Rink is located at Atkinson Park in downtown Ketchum and, during regular business hours, the Recreation Center offers free skates, helmets, pucks and sticks. This rink is popular with everyone from local businessmen on a lunch break to little ones pushing chairs around. This is also where the annual Idaho Pond Hockey Classic takes place every Martin Luther King weekend, with the requisite beer, brats, and music. For more info call 208.726.7820.
Located at the south end of Hailey, Roberta McKercher Park is converted, by way of hoses and an old Zamboni, from a grassy field into a local’s outdoor ice rink. It’s a great place to come in your jeans, bring some old skates and a hockey stick or, more commonly, tennis shoes and a broom. The only amenities provided are two goals at each end of the field, so bring your own hot chocolate (and try to stay away from the edges as they tend to sprout grass and get bumpy).
