Purchase Skate Sharpening Online

Howelsen Ice Arena is now requiring online purchases for skate sharpening so we will no longer be accepting walk-in purchases.  With our new, easy-to-use system, it will make skate drop offs and pick ups seamless and hassle-free.  

What You Need to Know

  • Cost: $10 for a standard sharpening, $12 for same-day sharpening
  • Turnaround Time: For standard sharpening, please allow 24 hours' notice.  If you would like to purchase a same day sharpening, you must receive approval from rink staff prior to your online purchase.  If you purchase a same day sharpening online without rink staff approval, we may not be able to accommodate your request.
  • You can only purchase one skate sharpening per transaction.  You can log back in and make additional purchases if you would like to purchase more than one.

How to Purchase a Skate Sharpening 

  • Click the blue reservation button below and it will take you to our online reservation system.  If you are a frequent user, create an account to speed up the checkout process.
  • Choose from standard or same day sharpening (please note the above information regarding same day sharpening).  Follow the prompts to complete your purchase.
  • Upon completion, you will receive a confirmation email with the next steps, along with a PDF ticket document.  This document contains a barcode that you will need to drop off your skates.  This barcode can be printed or scanned from a phone, so if you are purchasing for someone else, you can email the PDF or take a screenshot of the barcode and send.  
  • Next Steps:
    • Bring your skates and the barcode to Howelsen Ice Arena and locate the Skate Sharpening Station in the lobby.
    • Touch anywhere on the computer screen to begin and follow the prompts to print your ticket. 
    • Once your ticket prints, fill in your phone number, desired due date and time, and circle your desired radius of hollow.  
    • Place the ticket in your skate and place them to left of the Skate Sharpening Station.  That's it!  Your skates will be waiting for you in the same place for pick up at your designated date/time.
