Ice Skating

Spin and glide in the Mountain State! There’s something about an open rink that frees your soul. Skate indoors or outside, all year or just during winter — and give your kids a gold-medal moment.

Whether you’re a child or just a child at heart, ice skating is something everyone can enjoy. You may spend more time on the ground than actually upright, but there is no denying that you’ll have fun either way! Throughout the state, you can find ice skating rinks for family-friendly fun.

Located just outside of the cozy, unique towns of Thomas and DavisCanaan Valley Resort State Park is home to 47 ski slopes, a snow tube park, a modern lodge, and that’s right, an ice skating rink! The rink is open every week through the winter season and is surrounded by beautiful rolling mountains and plains. They offer skate rentals, too!

The South Charleston Memorial Ice Arena is jam-packed with fun for everyone. The rink features a heated seating area with TVs and a fireplace in case you are only there to spectate. The rink itself is quite large, as it can even fit Olympic figure skating routines. Admission to the rink is $8 plus $2 if you’re renting skates. If you work up an appetite, there is even a concession stand inside the arena. Or, if you’re really hungry, you can visit Capitol Street in downtown Charleston and eat at one of the many local restaurants!

With so many options around the state for ice skating, there is no excuse not to have some fun gliding around the rink!
