Palouse Ice Rink (Moscow, Idaho)

Palouse Ice Rink

I have a theory:  we will look forward to winter if we get into some winter activities.  So, while we have yet to learn to snowshoe or cross-country ski (next year, I swear!), this winter we tried ice skating.

Interior (with an open end) of Palouse Ice Rink

The one ice rink here is Palouse Ice Rink.  It is located in the Rotary Veterans Memorial Pavilion at the Latah County Fairgrounds in Moscow, Idaho.  It is basically across the street from the Eastside Marketplace Shopping Center.

My older son (who is now 4) has been doing skating lessons, which have gone well.  Sign up for lessons through the Pullman or Moscow Parks and Recreation Department.  It is a bit expensive, but skates are included, as is a punch card for 6 open-skate visits.

Skating Lesson

Skating has been a nice cold weather thing to do.  I also like the idea of the boys knowing at least the basics of skating so that someday all four of us can go and all have a good time. (This year my 2 year old was really not quite ready, but I did see other kids that age enjoying skating.)

Skate Rental at Palouse Ice Rink

The Palouse Ice Rink has a lot of open skate times.  Check the schedule on their website:

It also has adult lessons in addition to kid lessons.

Because the rink has an open end, it is not open year round.  The website says ice skating season is typically late October to early April.  In the summer, I believe they do roller skating, including Roller Derby.  I will make sure to do a post on that this summer!

  1. Very cool! Thanks for posting. I never knew this place existed. Now you need to get a stick in that little boy’s hands!

    Chris is right…I think ice hockey is THE thing on the Palouse during the winter for all ages. Are you prepared for your boys to have removable front teeth?

    Are there college scholarships for hockey? Maybe removable teeth would not be so bad…..
