Ice Skating in Vancouver

Weekly events to Ice Skating on Denman StreetA we get ready for the turn of the seasons, and prepare for the long winter ahead, there are some great things to look forward to. Everyone can’t wait for the ski hills to open, skiing, snowboarding, sledding & snowmobiling. But down here on ground level we are embracing the Canadian winter with a weekly trip to go


Each Monday night we will lead all interested backpackers & Samesun friends down to the West End Community Center for a go on the ice. You can’t have a Canadian winter with out a little iceskating – and if you stick around after the public skate is closed you might see some hockey stars practicing at our local rink.

Never tried ice skating before? Don’t worry. You can rent a helmet and all the gear you need down at the rink.

Backpackers coming through Canada this time of year must join this weekly activity as a great way to make friends & learn some new skills.


Think your a pro on the ice? Let us know first and we can set you up to take some tutorials – we love to share people talents.
