Utah is the land of winter sports, but I have a confession to make: we are not big winter sports people. Our family doen’t ski, snowboard, and we have only been ice skating a few times. We know that many people are looking for fun places to go ice skating in Utah, so we have gathered a list of family-friendly ice skating rinks to help you enjoy some family time at the rink.
We have not visited all of these venues, but when we do, we will update any details or information. These locations are listed from north to south. Prices are current as of 2021.

Tuacahn Amphitheater: St. George
We heard that there is ice skating at The Tuacahn Amphitheater in St. George. There is no information on their site about it right now because they are not open for it this year. It might just be part of their Christmas in the Canyon during December. As we get more info, we will add it here.
We hope this information will help you find a place for your family to go ice skating in Utah. Let us know in the comments you’re favorite place to ice skate, or if we missed a great spot on our list!
