Where do people skate in the Winter
« on: December 06, 2020, 06:33:07 PM »
I live in Durham Region in Ontario Canada and I just started skating in September but now its freezing outside. Does anyone know of places to skate during the winter?

parking garage, indoor park (most likely closed bc covid), covered places at like schools n stuff, basically anywhere dry also layers are very important. buy thermals and get a windbreaker, tuck in your shirt, get used to being in pain especially when u bail or slam.

I live in south FL so we skate outside in the winter. It's summer when we want indoor options. Hope that helps!

Parks, garages, or just man up and throw on some long johns under your jeans and flannel over a hoodie.  Maybe even some gloves and a winter hat (Aka beanie).

Our friends to the north don’t share our vulgar dialect; it’s ”toque” to those polite bastards.
