Strap on skates and glory in gliding across natural ice:
• The Victoria Glacier, giant ice castle and Ice Magic sculptures provide a wondrous atmosphere for the Zamboni-smooth Lake Louise rink behind the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
• Rundle Mountain view, firepit, benches and picnic tables provide ambiance for the Terrace rink behind the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel.
• Quaint Kananaskis Village Pond in the park-like courtyard is night lit. There’s a hockey rink too.
• Two blocks from Main Street, Canmore Pond is a magnate for local families and visitors.
