The former Sno-King Ice Arena undergoes remodeling, reopens as the Lynnwood Ice Center.. The Background Olympic silver medalist Rosalynn Sumners trained here back when it was the Sno-King Ice Arena--inspiring little girls everywhere to become ballerinas on ice. Yet this rink is known for its ties to hockey more than figure skating, and boys and girls--helmets, padding and all--practice their turns, stops and scoring at evening public skating sessions. Complete with team flags and hockey coaches, this rink is more likely to turn out a future Wayne Gretzky than a Brian Boitano.
The Facts The public skating sessions on a hockey regulation-sized rink are open to everyone--but call ahead to verify times. Strict rules keep the rink safe, though you may find yourself dodging little hockey players as you careen--or wobble--your way around the ice. During the daytime, you're more likely to find figure skaters.
