Yosemite's Curry Village Ice Skating Rink under Half Dome
In 2013, The Huffington Post included the Half Dome Village (previously called Curry Village) 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."
As of December 2017, the Half Dome Village Ice Rink is now located back in its original spot near the Huff Housing area. It opened for the season on Saturday, Dec. 16. There is currently no lighting available for night skating, so the rink will be open during daylight hours only.
Skating will be available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and noon to 4 p.m. during the weekdays.
