Family Sports Ice Arena

Whether you're an ice skater, a hockey player, learning how to skate, or just looking to glide on the ice, the Family Sports Ice Arena is the place for you.

Oh, and did we mention, it’s the practice facility for the Colorado Avalanche? So fans, stop on by to watch them get ready for the next game. You might even get a signature or two.

And once you’ve built up an appetite, hit the concessions or eat at our full service restaurant and bar that overlooks the Avs’ practice sheet.
