Welcome to the Los Alamos County Ice Rink

Built in 1936, the ice rink is the only refrigerated, NHL regulation, outdoor ice rink in New Mexico.  Tucked against the canyon with a backdrop of pine trees, the ice rink offers public skating, hockey, and skating lessons from November through February. Whether it is stunning winter skies dotted with fluffy white clouds, or night skies filled with twinkling stars the ice rink is where you and your family can enjoy an unforgettable skating experience. Because we are an outdoor rink adverse weather may force the rink to close with short notice.
