Outdoor Skating is Magical in the Sault
There’s nothing like the sound of the sharp edge of your skates carving into a frozen waterway. In Sault Ste. Marie, we embrace winter and the cool outdoor activities it offers. Outdoor skating provides you with the nostalgic experience of gliding over crisp ice with the snow gently falling around you. Afterwards, enjoy a well-deserved cup of hot cocoa, and a good book by the fire.
Crimson Ridge is a world-class golf course in the summer, but they dedicate this beautiful natural space to skating, fat biking, and other seasonal activities in the winter. Enjoy a smooth 1.1km skate trail loop around the course. Night skating available.
Clergue Park Waterfront Skate Trail
This 1km skate trail is located next to Sault Ste. Marie’s spectacular waterfront, giving views of the St. Mary’s River and United States. The trail is managed by the City of Sault Ste. Marie and there are often fun events planned.
Art Jennings Speed Skating Oval
Named after the founder of the Sault Ste. Marie Speedskating Association, Art Jennings, this outdoor rink is great for an outdoor power skate or a leisurely loop. Just a 5 minute drive from the Inn, next to the John Rhodes Community Centre, indoor changerooms are accessible. The speed skating oval also features a small beginner’s rink for those who may not yet be confident on their blades.
