I wouldn’t exactly call Reno a mecca for ice sports – Skiing, hiking, biking absolutely – ice skating not so much. That could be because there is no permanent ice rink in Reno. I guess that’s what makes the seasonal outdoor ice skating rink at Greater Nevada Field in Reno such a treat for the entire family.
Ice Skating at Greater Nevada Field in Reno
My daughter and her classmates from National Charity League spent more than three hours there this weekend combining ice skating with friends, with a little NCL business. It was a beautiful, blue sky day with no wind in the middle of January. That is almost unheard of in Reno. People were ice skating in t-shirts! We had to bust out the sun screen!
The ice skating rink at Greater Nevada Field in Reno is open November through mid February depending on weather. The price ranges from $10-$12 dollars per person. That includes skate rental. You may also want to bring a few extra dollars for the snack bar. In addition to free skate, the rink offers ice skating lessons, group discounts and birthday parties.
