Imagine skating outdoors with your family and friends, surrounded by the breathtaking scenery, the twinkle of festive lights and the Olympic rings.
Each winter, the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW), in partnership with the Province of British Columbia, transforms Whistler Olympic Plaza into skating rinks. With room for 150 skaters at a time, skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza is as intimate as it is spectacular.
Skating at Whistler Olympic Plaza opens on Saturday, December 10, 2016.
Whistler Olympic Plaza is located in the heart of Whistler Village near the intersection of Lorimer Road and Blackcomb Way.
Public skating is also available at Meadow Park Sports Centre.
Free admission! Skate rentals are $6. Helmets are available at no charge.
