Ice skating is one of the most beloved winter activities in Canada. You can find several skating rinks throughout Vancouver and nearby. One of the most popular outdoor rinks is located at Robson Square. It annually gathers around 80,000 skaters. One more place for skating can be found on Grouse Mountain. At the top of the mountain, among snow-covered firs and hemlock trees, you’ll find a 743-square-metre skating pond. Helmets and skate rentals are available as well.
Vancouver offers both seasonal and year-round rinks, mostly the indoors ones. The outdoor rinks are usually open December through February.
