Practice Your Skating Skills On The Coldest Days Of The Year On The Frozen Fremont Lake In Wyoming
Out here in Wyoming, we tend to find our own fun. If you love winter – and let’s face it, if you live here, you probably love winter – chances are that you’ve got a pair of ice skates sitting in a closet, just waiting to be dusted off and put to use! Make a plan to try some “wild ice” skating at Fremont Lake this season, and you’ll remember the joys of skating on your town’s lakes as a kid. Here, you can work on your skating skills while enjoying the most stunning backdrop you can possibly imagine. If you’re a newbie, come alone with us as we show you why this is the best outdoor place to go ice skating in Wyoming.
Be sure to check with the ranger station for lake conditions before hitting the ice! While it’s typically thick enough for skating pretty early in the season, safety comes first, and you’ll want to be sure you aren’t heading out into any danger. If you don’t want to skate on a lake, there are plenty of official ice skating rinks in Wyoming, as well!
