Our Steamboat trip ended at the end of ski season so we needed to find something for our group of twelve to do. Howelsen Ice Arena fit the bill. The kids had a great time skating and the bumper cars were a hit. My five year old had a blast and is still talking about it. Pricing was reasonable and... More

We recently traveled to Steamboat with our twin 7 year olds. One of them loves to ski, the other not so much. It was important that I find something fun to do with the non skier...enter the Ice Arena. I booked a time for a Friday morning...unfortunately when that morning came around my husband was ill and we were not... More

Our family of 10 went to the open skate after a day on the slopes. The employees were super friendly and polite. We went just for the ice skating (which was a blast). The helmets and ice walkers were a huge help to the little ones. You will want to bring a camera and mittens!! As we were finishing up... More

We have lived in Steamboat for 2 years and finally took our grandchildren to the bumper cars at the ice arena. There were 6 of us ranging from age 11 to age 70 and we all loved it. It's only about 20 minutes but that is enough time, I never stopped laughing the entire time. Wear warm clothing and bring... More

Had a great time! The fifteen minute ride was lots of fun. Listen to their advice about bundling up; I think it was colder in there than outside. The seven years olds were worried about how to use the controls but it came naturally once they were inside the cars. We laughed and laughed! Such a highlight of our ski... More

We went to Howelsen Ice Arena to do the Ice Bumper Cars as something to do on a day we were not skiing. It was fun for both adults and children (10/10/2). They encourage children to drive there own car which I would definitely recommend. Obviously the two year old had to ride with an adult, technically their rules say... More

I had no idea what to expect when my friend said we were going -- how great to have 20 minutes of pure hysterical laughing! If you are visiting Steamboat and there is availability, do not miss out on this fun for anyone over 6 years old!

My eight-year-old son and I spent a morning at this ice arena and had a wonderful time! The manager couldn't have been nicer, giving my son pointers on skating (it was my son's second time doing so) and then loaned us hockey sticks & a puck to use. This motivated my son to work hard at learning to skate. We... More
