Glacier Ice Rink, located on the Missoula County Fairgrounds, has provided hockey and other recreational ice skating activities for the Missoula community since 1997. We are operated by the Missoula Area Youth Hockey Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We’ve grown from our modest beginnings in a converted cow barn into the two-sheet facility we are today.
Each year, more than 25,000 people visit the rink through our youth and adult hockey and skating programs and the external user groups who rent our ice. We do not receive County funding and instead, generate income through our program fees, ice rentals, and the generosity of sponsors and donors.
Our facility features:
- Indoor NHL-sized rink open late August through June
- Covered outdoor NHL-sized rink open November through March
- Concession stand open during
- Skate shop with skate sharpening service and hockey and figure rental skates
- Eight locker rooms – four heated and four non-heated
To inspire a life-long passion for ice sports among people of all ages and abilities.
Respect: Treat others better than you expect to be treated.
Sportsmanship: Foster a sense of fair play, humility in victory and graciousness in defeat, as well as friendship with teammates and opponents alike.
Integrity: Demonstrate honest and fair play, beyond simple strict adherence to the rules and regulations of the game.
Teamwork: Success on the ice, as in many aspects of life, is best achieved working as a team, towards a shared goal.
