What to wear

Please dress for the weather since the Natrel Rink is outdoors and by the lake. Make sure that your clothing allows you to move freely while keeping you warm and dry. Snowpants or waterproof pants are highly recommended. Jeans are not suitable for skating.

Waterproof gloves/mitts are ideal.

Because classes are held outdoors, weather plays an important role in our programming. Classes are held in all conditions, unless they get extreme. If we cancel a class, we’ll reschedule it. You’ll always receive your complete number of classes.

Classes are subject to cancellation due to the following conditions: Heavy precipitation (rain, snow, hail), extreme wind, lightning and/or extreme cold (-15 C air temp. or -25 C with wind chill).
