Many begin to get restless this time of year. As if Cabin fever and seasonal depression weren’t enough, this January also heaps on the COVID-19 pandemic and an increasing number of cases. One fun and safe way to tame these very real issues is to get outdoors and go ice skating.

Salida hosts a natural ice rink on Frantz Lake for all community members to enjoy.

For those who do not own ice skates, Ramps and Alleys has a limited number of skates available for rental to the public for skating on the lake.

Stacy Falk, owner of Ramps and Alleys says she has 30 pairs of skates and can accommodate most sizes excluding men’s 9, 10 and 11. Falk is currently on the search for more skates to add to the collection.

“It’s been really popular; we’ve done really well with it,” said Falk.

Skates are $10 per pair for 24 hours and Falk recommends that those interested in skates come in and try them on in-person before reserving them. Ramps and Alleys also offers skate sharpening for those who have their own skates.

Interested skaters can call 719-539-5468 to reserve a pair of skates today.
