Utah’s largest outdoor ice skating rink is set to open in Millcreek this weekend.

The Millcreek Common Skate Loop, built with a $500,000 Utah Outdoor Recreation Grant, is made up of over 11,000 square feet of ice making it the largest ice skating rink in the entire state. It originally opened this summer for roller skaters and skateboarders and was met with much success, but now the loop will open for its first winter.

Before the grand opening this weekend, the loop will host its first annual Millcreek Magic Ice Show from Thursday to Saturday titled “Polar Lights.” The event is already sold out, but skaters looking to hit the ice rink when it opens can go here to reserve ice skating times throughout the winter season.
