    When LA Freezes Over

    The technology to keep ice frozen even in 80-degree weather has spawned an outbreak of outdoor ice skating rinks around the Los Angeles, creating pseudo-winter fun for the masses. If you're a seasoned skater planning to join in the fun, remember, ice skating doesn't come naturally to Angelenos, so be prepared for lots of beginners of all ages stumbling around the ice.

    Each ice rink has its own schedule, some starting as early as the beginning of November and running through February.

    Continue through the slide show for dates and rates of all the places you can go ice skating outdoors around LA and Orange County.

    The first rink to open this year with the longest seasons overall, is Irvine Spectrum's OC CHILL in Orange County.

Skate sessions are 75 minutes, with a 15-minute break between each session. This rink is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. $19 Adults including skates, $15 with your own skates, Toddlers $14 including skate rental. No charge for helmets (recommended, not required). Ice scooters $5. Season passes are available.
