The arena also has a video arcade, coffee shop, locker rooms, shops and party rooms. The arena is a great place to hold a birthday party, hockey game, or a simple relaxing family skate session
The beautiful outdoor ice rink at heavenly village is a fantastic way to enjoy some music as well as the fresh air whilst you are skating.

If you get bored of skating then simply jump off the rink and try your hand at tubing, kids ski school or the shopping village. Heavenly village is easily accessible by the tram located in the downtown area of South Lake Tahoe.
