Vermont Ice Skating

Vermont Ice Skating Resources and Information

Ice skating in Vermont is a natural. Growing up here, we take for granted that come winter, ice skating will be available somewhere close by and so it is today. With indoor skating rinks, arenas, community rinks and wild ice skating trails on our lakes and ponds, there are ample opportunities to lace up and hit the ice.

The Northeast Kingdom of Vermont is one of the very first Geotourism Areas in the world, specially designated by National Geographic. It has long been a mecca for a wide variety of outdoor recreation from hunting and fishing to skiing and hiking. But it also offers a world class venue for all types of endurance sports such as running, biking, swimming, kayaking, and skating. A series of running, biking and swimming events was started in 2007 in an effort to support IROC, our community’s indoor pool, multi-purpose sports arena, and recreation center. When that facility closed in 2013, Kingdom Games was formed to continue and expand these outdoor events. Kingdom Games now offers over 30 days of running, biking, swimming, triathlon, kayaking, Nordic skating, pond hockey, speedskating and winter swimming events in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and the Eastern Townships of Quebec.

Ice Skating Safety

Ice skating is a fun winter activity, and also a great exercise! The National Safety Council offers these tips to help you and your family enjoy safe skating.

  • Wear skates that fit comfortably and provide enough ankle support to keep you on your feet.

  • Have the blades professionally sharpened at the beginning of each season.

  • Skate only on specially prepared skating areas where you are sure the ice is strong enough to withstand your weight.

  • Always check for cracks, holes and other debris.

  • Before setting out on your skating expedition, learn basic skating skills, such as how to stop and fall safely.

  • Wear warm clothing and rest when you become tired or cold.

  • Never skate alone.
