Covid Return to Play Protocols

Park City Ice Arena is following the CDC guidelines and it’s the honor system.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html

Patrons with COVID 19 can return to the facility after 5 days, so long as they have not had symptoms for at least 24 hours. The CDC states that people ending isolation after 5 days are to continue to wear a mask until 10 days have passed. So, patrons can come back to the Ice Area after 5 days, so long as they wear a mask even during on ice activities through their day 10.


City Park Outdoor rinks

The outdoor ice rinks at City Park are open for skating 9am-9pm daily, weather permitting.  Check Park City Ice Arena Instagram and Facebook pages for updates.

The ice will remain operational until seasonal conditions are no longer favorable. Tennis and pickleball courts will not be disturbed by the winter activation, and daily access is dependent on ice conditions. 

Skate rentals are not available. Park City Ice Arena has a very limited inventory of donated used skates and is able to order new skates with a fitting appointment. Contact Erika Roberts to schedule a skate fitting at (435) 615-5704.


Please Pre-Register for Freestyle Sessions & Off-ice classes

Please help out rink staff by pre-registering for all freestyle sessions and off-ice classes. It is not necessary to register for an entire month at a time, especially if you plan to continuously change your skater's schedule. You can register weekly or even daily, we just ask that you please do it in advance.

We understand there have been some issues in completing registration through Dash. The software asks that you acknowledge the medical question again and then you will be able to complete your registration. See picture below.

As a reminder, please email for refunds due to a new injury or illness. Texting the coaches doesn't get the message to rink staff to issue the refund.

NEW FSCPC Incentive Program

We are excited to announce our new FSCPC incentive program, the FSCPC Stars! Skaters who achieve a goal, work really hard, or master a new skill will be given a ticket by a coach. They will write their name on the ticket and put it in the jar. Once a month we will draw names for some cool gift cards like Cold Stone, Starbucks, Apple and more!

Thank you to our board for funding the purchase of the gift cards. Winners must be members of FSCPC.
