The outdoor skating rink at Whistler Olympic Plaza is an inspiring place to ice skate outdoors with your family and friends, surrounded by majestic scenery, the twinkle of festive lights and the iconic Olympic rings.
An adaptive, measured approach has been taken to safely plan and reactivate recreation facilities in close alignment with the recommendations of the Provincial Health Office and associated recreation agency guidelines. These agencies include–but are not limited to– BC Recreation and Parks Association, Recreation Facilities Association of British Columbia, viaSport, Municipal Insurance Association of British Columbia and Vancouver Coastal Health.
Appropriate health and safety protocols have been implemented and we are excited to welcome you back to our facility.
Indoor skating is available year round at Meadow Park Sports Centre. For more information about public skating times, please visit whistler.ca/skate.
