Our History

The Glacier Ice Rink has been in operation in its current location since 2013. Ice skating in Cedar City began with a naturally frozen rink boarded by hay bales on Brent Hunter’s farm. It didn’t take long to realize that skating is an activity that people of this area crave. A committee was formed to create a larger more dependable rink that could provide a greater opportunity for the community to participate in skating and ice sports. With a combination of RAP tax funds, a large donation by Staheli West, and thousands of volunteer hours, The Glacier was born.

 

For 7 years The Glacier operated on Cedar City property, adjacent to the Aquatic Center. In those 7 years The Glacier proved without a doubt that Cedar City, and really all of Southern Utah loves ice sports. The Glacier was extremely successful in every way. Sadly in the spring of 2020 we were required to vacate the city's property to the rec. center could be expanded. 

Despite the disappointment of losing the only sheet of ice in 200 miles, we are hopeful that ice sports will again be part of our community soon.
