Take a deep breath of that cool, crisp, mountain air and drink in this truly Canadian experience — open air ice skating
Slice Through the Ice
Pond skating is something we love to do in Valemount. It’s even more fun when visitors join us. With the blue skies above and the groomed surface of Cranberry Marsh below it’s time for some outdoor fun! Grab a stick, make a team and start a good old-fashioned game of pond hockey. Pack a lunch and a thermos full of a hot beverage to keep you warm. Get to know your team and hassle your competition — this is Canada’s sport after all.
Pond Skating at its Finest
Take a spin on the oval, carve a figure eight or show off for the kids. As you wind your way through the channels, make a note to come back in the summer and take a meandering canoe trip. The quiet calm and serenity offered by the snow capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains above, set the mood for the day.
