8 skating rinks to tackle around Montreal before the weather heats up

Mar 15 2021, 2:00 pm

Summit Vodka comes from the foothills of the Canadian Rockies and uses only the best that Canada has to offer. Made with 100% winter wheat and distilled 5 times to deliver exceptional smoothness it is no wonder Summit Vodka was awarded 93 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2020.

Montreal is currently in Red Zone, Level 4–Maximum Alert — the government’s strictest tier — in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. Between 8 pm and 5 am, Quebecers must not leave their homes except in cases that justify travel. Travelling between regions is “not recommended” per the government, and all COVID-19 protocols (indoor mask-wearing, two-metre physical distancing, and frequent sanitization) must be followed.

The weather is heating up which means your time to hit the ice in Montreal is dwindling.

And sure, we’re all excited for springtime weather but considering indoor arenas have been closed since the fall, you might want to soak up as much ice time as possible before next winter.

The City of Montreal updates its website regularly, giving skaters information about which parks are offering the best ice as we near mid-March.

We’re going to focus specifically on outdoor skating rinks that are deemed “excellent” by the City of Montreal, most of which are refrigerating outdoor arenas.
