Rossland Arena

The Rossland Arena built in 1947 has been raising hockey champions for over 50 years. Home to NHL Stanley Cup Winner Dallas Drake, Rossland’s high altitude at 1,023 Meters (3,400 feet) and consistently cold and dry weather along with dedicated long term rink staff create a hard and fast ice surface commonly known as BC's best ice surface. The arena which seats 800, with available parking for 150-200 cars is located within an easy 2 block walk of the restaurants, hotels and shops of the pedestrian friendly downtown Rossland Core. Featuring a 1971 Ford 3000 tractor with tow behind Olympia Zamboni, the classic machine produces a product unavailable with today’s newer equipment. Driven and operated by long term staff no one knows their facility better than Rossland Arena staff. 5 Dressing rooms, on-site skate sharpening, skate rentals, licensed for alcohol, and intimate small town rink atmosphere provide everything a local run and loved community rink and event hosting site should along with the unique Alpine city hospitality that echoes through the classic building.
