Ice skating, in the desert?

Sure why not.

Westgate shows people don’t have to be bracing the chill winds of New York or Chicago to enjoy holiday ice skating. According to the Glendale entertainment center’s website, “Kids and adults are invited to partake in a timeless holiday tradition – outdoor ice skating on our real ice rink!”

Westgate Skate is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10:45 p.m. through Jan. 12.

The price of skating and skate rental for adults and children is $16 ($13 for those who bring their own skates), $13 for toddlers and military. A season pass is $99.
