Arctic Glacier Winter Park
The Forks, Winnipeg, MB, R3B 3H6
Join us on the site for the official celebration of winter. Skate on 1.2 kilometres of trails, shoosh down the toboggan run, shimmy and find your way through the Great-West Life Interactive Ice Castle or try your tricks in the professionally designed Snowboard Fun Park.
The Plaza Skating Rink is artificially cooled, allowing the skating surface to stay frozen earlier in the winter and remain later into the spring. The canopy above the ice surface is beautifully lit and animated with music.
The Snowboard Fun Park features a variety of rails, table tops, jumps and fun-boxes. Drop in ramps are located in the skateboard park.
An Olympic-sized Skating Rink is located adjacent to the Scotiabank Stage and is available for leisure skating and pick-up hockey games. The rink is maintained daily with a Zamboni for excellent ice conditions. Hockey nets and warm-up shacks are provided.
The Toboggan Run goes off a small berm behind the parkade. Bring your toboggan and glide into Festival Park.
1.2 km of skating trails connect the largest portion of Arctic Glacier Winter Park to The Plaza and Market areas and meander through The Forks site. All trails, rinks and the river are connected to the Plaza with rubber mats. Warming huts and many benches are strategically placed along the trail.
Festive lights enhance Arctic Glacier Winter Park by keeping the entire site colourfully lit and providing a warm, beautiful glow.
The Great-West Life Interactive Ice Castle is located in the roundabout beside the Inn at the Forks and created by Krystal Dreams Ice Sculptures.
Skate rentals are available at the Mini Donuts Factory located adjacent to the skate changing area in The Forks Market Atrium. Rates are $3 for children and seniors, and $5 for adults. Call 257.0288 or 955.8814 for group bookings.
