There are only a handful of places to go ice skating in the Pacific Northwest, and unfortunately our winters rarely stay frigid enough to keep lake and pond ice thick enough for safe skating. Luckily enough for folks in the Bend area, the Seventh Mountain Resort has maintained their ice skating rink for decades. It has long been a place where families can enjoy skating, twirling and cozying-up next to one of the outdoor fire places.
Note: The rink offers private lessons and scheduled hockey, so be sure to call in advance to get their hours for open skating. Call 541.693.9124 for more information.
