Ice Skating is one of the famous sports in Shimla. This beautiful place offers the largest ice-skating rink in the country. Skating is best done during the months from December to February when the ground is covered with natural ice. The Shimla Ice Skating Club has already completed 75 years. The club offers short term as well as a single session membership to visitors.
Two sessions are organised in the morning and evening every day depending on the ice existing on the ground. The Municipal Building features a hanging balloon, which gives signals of the possibility of ice skating. An ice skating festival is also held in Shimla every winter when the snow comes alive with fun, feast and frolic.
