Ice Skating

Last year, ice skating returned to Val Bialas for the first time in years.  Many people brought their kids or enjoyed a nice skate after school.  We are going to ratchet up the fun this year.   We are putting the ice skating rink on the second bank of tennis courts under the lights!    It will be a much larger rink, and it will be WELL LIT at night.

Waiting for Skating!

Why isn’t the ice skating rink full of ice?   We are waiting for the temperature to drop below 32 degrees.   Then we will flood it with water.

We are hoping to open the week before Christmas.

We are setting up the larger ice skating rink on the second bank of tennis courts.   It will be better than last year.   And it has GREAT lighting for nite time skating.    When we get sustained cold below freezing, we will flood the rink.

    I am wondering if I can buy a seasons pass type thing to use the ice rink all winter. Also possible one night a week we could play a little soft touch hockey on the ice?

      Sure, the prices are listed on the prices page.  Once we are open, come to the office and setup a time for your hockey games.

    Hi Candy, After 4 years of putting up the portable rink and not having it freeze 3 of those years, we decided not to put up the rink and concentrate on finding the funds to put up a permenant one. Sorry!

    Bummer. The only outdoor ice skating rinks I am aware of (so far) are in Syracuse and the Albany area. Are there any outdoor ones closer to the Utica area?

    I see the post from January 10th, but with this extensive cold weather I wondered if you decided to set up a rink anyway? So I guess what I m asking is, do you have ice skating avail?
