I had been to a few other ice skating rinks in Northern California, but when I arrived, I was very surprised by how big the rink was. 

It’s 85 feet wide and 200 feet long. It’s the only NHL regulation-size outdoor rink in all of California.

The unique setting provides a true winter wonderland experience. From snow covering the ground and fresh mountain air in your face to views of Mt. Shasta in the background. 

When you head up to the entrance, there is a place where you will pay your skating and rental fees.

Surrounding the rink, there are cubbies to keep your belongings while you skate and benches for when you want to rest.

Since the Siskiyou Ice Skating Rink is so big compared to others, this leaves you more room for skating. 

There are blue skate helpers for the kids or if you are just learning.
