Sand Mountain Park & Amphitheater will be home to a 4,000 sq. foot ice rink this fall and winter. Sand Mountain Skate will be inside the Sand Mountain Amphitheater in Albertville, and skating season will run from November 18, 2022 – January 6, 2023. Sand Mountain Skate will feature the largest real outdoor ice rink in north Alabama, and will have a capacity of 375 skaters at one time.
Sand Mountain Skate will offer public skate sessions, birthday parties, corporate/private parties, church group functions, school field trips, skate show events, nightly holiday light show, Santa Claus appearances, and movie showings. Sand Mountain Skate will feature concession and bar options with themed food and drink choices for customers throughout the season to help enhance the guest experience. Skates and skating aids will be available for rent.
“Our Mission is to dramatically improve the health and economic vitality of the Sand Mountain region,” said Sand Mountain Park General Manager Patrick O’Brien. “Having the largest real ice rink in North Alabama will draw numerous visitors from outside the region, and those visitors will patronize local restaurants, shops, gas stations, hotels, and more. It will also be a focal point of fun during the holiday season that will help improve the mental and physical health of the Sand Mountain region.”
O’Brien also stated, "Sand Mountain Skate will enable our community to participate in a fun outdoor activity during the Fall/Winter season that will bring people together. Having the opportunity to get outside in the fresh air to skate on real ice is something that Marshall County has never had. We have a can’t-miss holiday destination this year right here in Albertville!”
Public skate sessions will be offered for $12 per person, including skate rental; without skate rental, $6 per person. Private parties and events will also be available. Hours of operation and public skate times will expand during holidays. We will also offer member only skate nights for a discounted rate.
