In 2013, The Huffington Post included the Curry Village (called Half Dome Village from 2016-2019) ice skating rink as one of the staff’s 10 favorite ice skating rinks. “If ice skating isn’t something that usually takes your breath away, the stunning views of the Half Dome and Glacier Point totally will.”
