The Olympic Plaza outdoor skating rink is officially open for business, and Calgarians have flocked en masse to the popular spot.

The rink opened to the public on Thursday, November 21, and in the few short days that followed it has already become a hit among skate-clad Calgarians.

Definitely a staple when it comes to wintertime activities here in YYC, the Olympic Plaza skating rink is open from 10 am to 9 pm, depending on the weather, and skates can be rented for $12, while the use of the ice is free to all comers.

Here’s what a day on the ice looks like in the heart of downtown Calgary:
