NileGuide Expert tip:
Avoid driving there during rush hour! Check the schedule or call ahead to find the right open skate sessions. Rentals available.
When the 2002 Winter Olympics came to Utah, they left a trail of world class sporting facilities, and this is one of them. Though it's good enough for the pros to train in, it's also open to the public -with open skate hours (speed skating and "normal" skating) and very affordable rentals.
Give speed skating a try- though fast, it's not impossibly hard to just master the basics.
An expansive structure, this also has an indoor running track, other smaller ice sheets, and indoor playing fields.
Don't try to drive here after 5pm on a work day; rush hour traffic in this part of town gets pretty intense!
