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 in downtown Reno such a treat for the entire family. In the past the rink was set up outside Greater Nevada Field. This season, it was set up near Circus Circus.
Outdoor Ice Skating in Reno
My daughter and her classmates from National Charity League spent more than three hours 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 is open November through mid February depending on weather. The price ranges from $10-$15 dollars per person. That includes skate rental. You may also want to bring a few extra dollars for the snack bar.
