Ice Skating

Please Note: the ice skating rink is now closed for the season

Discover why CNN and The Huffington Post (Fodors) claimed Lake Louise as World's Best Skating Rink in 2014.

Imagine gliding across beautiful Lake Louise, hand-in-hand with a sure-footed friend, testing your figure-skating skills, or channeling your inner Wayne Gretzky and ripping across the ice. Embrace the spirit of winter from our icy stage where the dramatic Victoria Glacier and snow frosted Rocky Mountains are your audience. With scenery that offers a backdrop worthy of Broadway for skating, there is no shortage of rosy-cheeked smiles on the ice. 

Lit daily for night skating, adventure seekers may enjoy the fresh mountain air and admire the shadows of the surrounding mountains. If you're up for an evening glide on Lake Louise, you will likely have the ice to yourself. Don't forget to look up at the clear, awe-inspiring night sky.

Each year our team creates an intricate ice castle from huge blocks of ice to highlight the world's most spectacular rink. An additional rink near the Nordic stop is open to all hockey enthusiasts.    

Lake Louise is cleared daily of snowfall. Skating is available from mid-December to mid-April, depending on conditions.

Rent skates and more at Chateau Ski and Snow Rentals. Located near the lobby, by the entrance to the parkade, our rental shop offers an array of high performance equipment for all ages and abilities. Please note there are no advance reservations available for ice skates.
