If the temps stay this cold, the answer to the question of "where is the best place to ice skate in Northern Colorado?" will be "Anywhere there is water". For now, we may have to wait until the sign goes up at the lake at City Park, and the outdoor sheet of ice opens at Centerra.

Here are the best places to ice skate in Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley and Windsor.

Sheldon Lake at City Park in Fort Collins

This wide open sheet of ice doesn't offer much in terms of maintenance, and there is no skate rental, but it is a lot of fun. It opens when Mother Nature permits, so we need a couple weeks of pretty cold weather for it to be ready. There is a sign that indicates if it is open or closed for skating that hangs in the trees near the parking area.


The Edora Pool Ice Center offers open skating to the public year round. Find the schedules here.
