Ice skating is the perfect family activity and Vail and Beaver Creek have a few different options - indoor or outdoor. Both Vail Village and Beaver Creek Village have outdoor rinks, open during the winter ski season, nestled in the heart of the towns. Black Family Ice Rink, in Beaver Creek, offers weekly events like Family Night at the Firepits each Monday and American Jukebox Skate Night on Monday and Friday evenings. An NHL-sized indoor ice rink is open from October through March in the town of Eagle. The largest Vail Ice Skating facility is the James A Dobson Ice Arena. Open year-round the facility has public skate times, private lessons, youth hockey and an adult hockey league.
