In a city where it never gets cold enough to play an impromptu game of hockey on a frozen pond, Extreme Ice Center comes to the rescue. The facility has two rinks, a mini training rink called The Puddle, a fitness center, and a restaurant overlooking the rinks.
The rink hosts hockey and broomball leagues, figure skating clubs, and skating and skills classes. Public skating sessions are held several times a week and skate rentals are available. There is also a pro shop on-site.
