This is the only real big ice rink in the entire Reno Tahoe area. All the rest of the dinky ice patches at the ski resorts are for children and tourists. I have speed skates and this is the only place I can actually use them and get up some speed. I like coming early as I can to avoid... More

A really nice ice rink. The ice is in good shape, the building is bright and clean, easy to get to, plenty of parking. They serve food and drinks and rent skates, and they are located in a beautiful pine forest a few minutes walk from the lake, so you can bring a group of people and everyone will find... More

We LOVE hockey. So to see games here is great. Everything is close up and you can see all the action. What's not to like?

It was fun, but they closed early and we didn't get to skate very much. It was not worth it for the $80 it costs to get up their with the lift. I woudl advise you to get there early in the day so that your money is worth it. We ended up hanging out at the bar instead even... More

It is very cold in there. The ice is kept in good condition. Lack of authority/supervision is nowhere to be found. Like some have said here, it is free for all skating. I witnessed an adult skater get tripped up and hurt from a child who had no business being out on the ice. The other disappointing factor here is... More

Nice rink, reasonable price. Kids able to skate for 2 hours. Walking distance from the hotel and ski lifts. Ample area for parents to watch kids skate.

My daughter loves to go there to ice skate. The only thing I did not like was that no one seemed to be supervising the skaters. Some people were going the wrong way, but no one stopped them.
