Where You Can Find Snow Sports in Rochester

February 11th, 2022

Snowsports in Rochester are meant to be exciting and memorable. Ice hockey is filled with intensity and speed, while cross-country skiing will leave you feeling breathless, exhilarated, and eager for more fun. When you come to Rochester, be sure to visit these five locations. These are the best places to participate in snow sports while you’re in Rochester.

Blue Cross Arena

Commonly referred to as the War Memorial, the Blue Cross Arena opened in 1955 as the Rochester Community War Memorial. Flash-forward decades later, and the multipurpose indoor arena now serves as a wonderful place to play hockey or participate in all types of skiing, from cross-country to alpine. Considering that in 2021 there were 133,444 snowmobiles sold worldwide, with 59,234 being sold in the U.S. and 50,567 sold in Canada only insinuates you’ll find the equipment you need if you know where to look. In addition, you won’t have to worry about any unnecessary risks, as the park is known to safely host top-notch events, including Wrestlemania and the Rochester Americans hockey team.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park at Manhattan Square

The memorial lodge contains a full kitchen and seating for 230. A perfect opportunity to rent if you have $600 to spare. If not, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park itself can be found next to the Strong Museum in the East End District. It’s home to a huge concrete plaza that contains a 2,000-seat amphitheater and skating rink. Here, memories and photographs will produce happy memories for your family, as well as the opportunity to ice skate in the colder months of the year.

Lakeshore Hockey Arena

At the Lakeshore Hockey Arena, your family can learn how to skate for the first time, how to figure skate, and how to sign up for fun skating camps throughout the year. As the ice is home to one of the most exciting sports of all time, the Lakeshore Arena is a good idea if it’s hockey in particular that you’re hoping to have fun with. The Arena’s also a great spot if you need to get your kids involved in something fun during the summer. As long as you can keep up with the registration fees, this spot is sure to take up plenty of your time.

Black Creek Park

In Black Creek Park, you’ll be sitting about 10 miles southwest of Rochester. There you’ll learn that while there are more than 3,000 snowmobile clubs in the world involved in trail grooming or charity fundraising. The most memorable family activities begin when you become one with nature at Black Creek Park. There are plenty of hiking trails to peruse in the winter. With hiking comes opportunities to embrace nature and wildlife, but be sure to be respectful and mindful of your time spent in this park. The locals will know that cross-country skiing and sledding can be a lot of fun, so long as everyone takes the time to respect the park’s rules and regulations.

Genesee Valley Park

Genesee Valley Park is located on the eastern bank of the Genesee River and is one of the best spots to visit in Rochester if cross-country skiing captures your interest. While there are plenty of hiking trails, this park stands out for the challenge you’ll take on when you decide to put on your skis. Remember, while out and about, you need to warm up your equipment batteries to at least 40 degrees Fahrenheit before attempting to charge the device. As long as you put as much effort into safety as having fun, Genesee Valley might end up as more than a brief stop. Just think of the sports camps and lodges available. You’ll be glad you did.

Rochester, New York is a wonderful place to participate in snow sports of all kinds while having fun with your family. Whether you’re interested in cross-country skiing or figure skating for the first time, choosing the right snow sports arenas takes as much attention to detail as focus on entertainment value. Fortunately, the parks in Rochester will be sure to keep your family coming back year after year.

One Response to “Where You Can Find Snow Sports in Rochester”

  1. Ryan says:

    This post is borderline nonsensical. Why does this say you can participate in alpine skiing at the war memorial? Why are there random mentions of snowmobiles in the sections on indoor facilities. Why is there talk of batteries in the Genesee Valley park section?
