Did you know that the ice rink is open for winter in Winthrop Washington earlier than it has ever opened, this year?
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of gliding across glistening ice on a pair of skates. Add a stunning outdoor setting, complete with towering mountains and bald eagles soaring overhead, and you’ve got the Winthrop Rink.
Nestled in the Methow Valley, the Winthrop Rink offers a range of programs for all ages and abilities. Programs from Open Skate sessions, to drop-in hockey, to freestyle figure skating, to Learn to Skate, to hockey tournaments are available.
What started out as a frozen patch of ground over two decades ago has grown, through community support, into a non-profit featuring refrigerated, NHL-sized rink.
It’s one of the most unique skating experiences in the Pacific Northwest!
