Jasper National Park, Alberta

Much better than an indoor rink, a frozen Canadian Rockies lake at Jasper National Park offers a different ice skating experience. Just make sure the ice is at least 15cm (6in) thick.

Enjoy the winter wonderland of the Canadian Rockies.

Where to Go: Ice Skating in Jasper National Park

Lac Beauvert
Besides being one of the most beautiful lakes in the Canadian Rockies, Lac Beauvert accommodates a rectangular skating rink just a short walk from the main Jasper Park Lodge. The rink becomes lit for night skating.

Lake Mildred
The Jasper Park Lodge clears a giant oval that may tire you out one or two laps. Two rectangular rinks are usually cleared inside the oval. There are also benches, a bonfire and free hot chocolate. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon whether you’re staying at the lodge or not.

Pyramid Lake
Another hot spot for ice skating, a portion of Pyramid Lake, close to the shore, is cleared and lit during the winter. You will need to take the road across the Activity Centre for six kilometres to Pyramid Lake Bungalows.
