Event Information


Bring your family down to Outdoor UW for a fun filled evening of skating (or snowshoeing if lake ice conditions make skating impossible)! This event will be filled with all the laughter, music, and games that your family needs to enjoy the Wisconsin Winter at Memorial Union. Our staff will teach you everything you need to know to get outside this winter. Beginners are welcome!

Skate rentals are available at $5 for students per hour and $7 for non students per hour. Skate rentals are available first to those registered (below) for the event. 15 minutes BEFORE the event begins we will call down the list of those registered to select their skates. Once those who are registered for the event (and present before the event begins) have their skates, rentals will be available to those not registered on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Youth under 18 need to be accompanied by a legal guardian at this event. 


***Limited sizes of ice skates are available. Skates are rented out on a first come, first served basis.

***If you are a person with a disability needing reasonable accomodation, please contact our Assistant Manager,
