Did you know that in addition to being fun, ice skating also offers a good workout?
It helps improve flexibility and overall fitness without putting too much pressure on your joints.
If you would like to glide around the ice, the best rinks near our Redmond apartments include:
Sno-King is among the top rinks in the Puget Sound area. It features an NHL-size ice surface along with a fully stocked pro-shop that has everything you need for skating fun. The public sessions welcome everyone from first-time skaters to those who have years of experience. They're scheduled year-round, and cost $9.50 for adults.
The rink also offers the exciting game of broomball. This fast-paced sport is a cross between hockey and soccer, and the objective is to outscore the other team before the final buzzer. Players use brooms to move the ball, and each half lasts between 20 and 25 minutes.
The Lynnwood Ice Center is a non-profit rink where skaters can enjoy open skating or take lessons from former international and Olympic level skaters. It's open from mid-morning to late evening, and the public sessions last about three hours.
If you would like to improve your skills, adults can enjoy group classes on Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings. Skate rental is included, and students can enjoy extra ice time after class.
A local fixture since 1962, the Highland Ice Arena is the home of the Highland Skating Club and the Washington Wild Female Hockey Association. Skaters enjoy open ice time most days, and the multi-session admission card offers a discount.
Adults can also enjoy stick and puck sessions. Held on Sunday evenings from 6:15 to 7:15, they're a great way to improve skating and stick handling skills. Players must wear gloves, elbow pads, and a helmet.
