At 35,000-square-feet, Dobson Ice Arena is one of the largest multi-purpose ice facilities on Colorado's Western Slope. It's open year-round for hockey, figure skating and broomball. It hosts ice events such as the Vail Invitational Skating Championships and the Bob Johnson Hockey Camp, yet the Lipizanner Stallions have also performed here, and the arena has been home to many other non-ice events, including concerts.
In late October, Ski and Snowboard Club Vail conducts its annual equipment swap here, a longstanding Vail Valley tradition. Dobson Ice Arena offers a variety of public skate times, classes, leagues, and competitions. It is also home to Vail Junior Hockey Club and Skating Club of Vail.
