Ice skating rinks & equipment offered at resorts, ski areas, sports centers

Vermont’s winter air and scenery are hard to beat. But the experience is enhanced when you slip on a pair of skates and step out on the ice on a pond, a lake, or an indoor/outdoor rink especially prepared for you. You can skate forever here on the longest skating trail in the U.S. Take to smaller rinks for some relaxed skating or pick up hockey games. Look for skating centers through the Green Mountain State, where skating venues abound and equipment is available to rent or purchase. Kids love skating when they learn early, and, remember, it’s a romantic sport, too.

Magical lakeside resort boasts the country’s longest ice-skating trail, a stunning 4.3-mile loop

At the Lake Morey Resort, winter can be a magical time. The morning fog seems almost crystallized over the shimmering lake. That’s when ice-skating is at its most perfect, especially when you consider this resort has the longest skate trail in the United States! The 4.3-mile loop skirts the lake shores, providing stunning panoramic views (you might even spot the occasional bald eagle). Daily ice reports are posted on the resort’s Facebook page, and skates as well as accessories rentals are available. Apres-skate, come back to the resort for a dip in the heated pool, a cool-down workout or some sheer relaxation in the sauna. (And if skating means hockey to you, check out the resort’s pond hockey offerings.)
