Where else can one ice skate on the same surface where American legend Eric Heiden won five Olympic gold medals in 1980? The site is only one mile from the Mirror Lake Inn with its entry just a few steps from Main Street. There is a skate rental shop at the venue and a warm building to get into and out of your skates. The cost is nominal. At the oval, you will see athletic training, recreational skating and on-ice socializing for visitors and residents.
