about THE ICE CHALET
FOUNDED IN 1962
The Ice Chalet was built in 1962 to provide recreational ice skating for Knoxville and surrounding communities. In addition to public sessions, we offer a comprehensive skating school program for all ages and abilities, as well as skate and accessory sales and service.
The Ice Chalet is located at 100 Lebanon Street, beside The Shops at Western Plaza on Kingston Pike in the heart of Knoxville, Tennessee. For directions, see our "Contact Us" page.
RINK SURFACE (Building Layout in PDF format)
The Ice Chalet's rink surface is 75' by 175'. Dressing rooms are available, and all floors are covered with rubber matting. The average temperature in the rink area is about 50 degrees Farenheit.
Food and drinks are available from the Chalet Cafe, located inside our lobby, on busy evenings and weekends. Several restaurants are also within walking distance.
Gloves are required for preschoolers. They will not enjoy themselves if they are cold. Other skaters will find that gloves and a sweater or jacket are comfortable in the rink area. Clothes should keep you warm, but also allow free movement. Skaters should wear only one pair of thin socks -- this allows for a better skate fit.
