Ice skating rinks offer chilly winter fun

For some people, winter won't be complete without some fun in the snow and ice. Even if the weather doesn't cooperate, there are many indoor ice rinks in the Triangle to satisfy your craving for cold and slippery winter fun.

The Polar Ice House has locations in Cary, Garner and Wake Forest, and they're great options for casual skating. All three locations offer skating classes for people of all ages and skill levels.

For those of you who love music and dancing, the Cary Ice House has Friday Night DJ Skate every week from 7:45 to 10 p.m. If you're looking to try something a little more unique, the Wake Forest Ice House is hosting a curling class next month.

Raleigh Ice Plex also offers free skating hours for the general public as well as skating lessons.

City Plaza in downtown Raleigh features an outdoor skating rink as part of Winterfest through Jan. 26. Admission is $8 and includes a skate rental – and how often do you get the opportunity to skate outdoors in Raleigh?

Near Durham and Chapel Hill is Triangle Sportsplex. The facility has an ice skating rink that opens up to the public. If you have a large group gathering coming up, like a team building activity at work or a church event, you can reserve the rink for an after-hours "Broomball" party.

Will you be heading to the rinks for some winter fun this month?
