The Northstar Village Ice Skating Rink sits in the center of Northstar Ski Resort's shopping and lodging village. As such, there is a Disneyland-type atmosphere: High-end condos and hotel rooms, sushi restaurants, and trendy outdoor gear and clothing stores all overlook the rink. There are couches and warming fires for spectators surrounding the rink, along with coffee and full service bars available in retail kiosks.
This is definitely a spot for those who prefer to enjoy the full range of amenities with their ice skating experience... or at least a spot to entertain your vacationing children for a couple hours.
Skate rentals are $15, with helmets available at an additional fee. The rink is open seasonally from 12 p.m. until 9 p.m. daily, weather permitting.
