Public Skate

Weekly public skate sessions are available at the Ritchie Center.

Sessions are held in Joy Burns Arena or Magness Arena, and are a great opportunity to participate in a fun family activity or to practice skating skills.

Free parking is available in Lot 401, just outside Joy Burns Arena, at the corner of Buchtel and University boulevards. The parking lot will open 30 minutes before a public skate session. View the parking page.

When participating in a public skate session, we recommend the following attire:

  • long pants
  • a long-sleeved shirt
  • a light or heavy jacket
  • gloves
  • a helmet

Skates are required. Rental skates are available at the Joy Burns Arena front desk.
