Ice skating is one of those activities that may be tough at first, but when you get the hang of it, it's a skill that you will never forget!
In the lovely Idaho Falls, the Joe Marmo / Wayne Lehto Ice Arena is a great option for beginners to learn some valuable skills and techniques, or for those more advanced to really hone their skills and learn some more tricks.
This great ice arena is the premier ice facility in south eastern Idaho, and offers top quality ice-skating programs, as well as hockey programs (and even non-ice related entertainment events!)
Want to just spend some time learning for yourself? Then head to one of the open public skating sessions. It's great for the family to all head down and enjoy together! Don't you worry if you need to hold onto the side rails for a bit - we've all been there!
If you did want to take advantage and learn to skate, the programs at Joe Marmo / Wayne Lehto Ice Arena are rewarding, fun and challenging - and is great for soon-to-be-skaters of all ages!
Kids will gain confidence on the ice, and the programs are designed so that kids and adults can participate. Beginners aged 3 - 5 can register for the fun Snowplow Sam, then the older kids can enjoy Basic 1 or Teen/Adult 1. Returning skaters will be able to move up levels as their instructor feels they are suited - which also means that kids can see themselves moving up and improving - great for their self-esteem!
So if you fancy trying a very fun ice experience, head on down to Joe Marmo / Wayne Lehto Ice Arena and get those skates on!
