Kids love to skate. Whirling, twirling, gliding effortlessly across the ice…watching their parents fall down. If you’re visiting Mt. Shasta in the winter months, there’s clearly loads to do, but did you know that they also have the only National Hockey League (NHL) regulation-sized outdoor rink in all of California? With Shasta Peak looming in the distance, Siskiyou Ice Rink is open for about three months from the end of November through January. Skating classes and hockey practice take up much of the rink’s time during the week, but the weekends have several hours of public skate time. If you’re here over the Christmas break, kids can join the weeklong skate camp to improve their technique and make new friends. There are also several special events throughout the season, and many opportunities to skate beneath the night sky. Add Siskiyou Ice Rink to your wintertime schedule.
