How to Purchase a Skate Service Ticket

  • Click the blue Purchase Ticket 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 your service and follow the prompts to complete your purchase.
  • Upon completion, you will receive a confirmation email with the next steps, along with a PDF ticket.  This document contains a barcode that you will need to drop off your skates and can be printed or scanned from a phone.
    • If you are purchasing for someone else, you can email the PDF or take a screenshot of the barcode and send to the person dropping off the skates.  
    • You will receive one PDF document and barcode for each ticket purchased, so as stated above, you must keep track of which barcodes have been used.
  • Next Steps:
    • Bring your skates and the barcode to Howelsen Ice Arena and locate the Skate Sharpening Station in the lobby.
    • Tap anywhere on the touch screen to begin and hit "Print Tickets".
    • Scan your barcode (you may need to enlarge it slightly on your phone screen).  Once your ticket prints, fill in  the following:
      • Phone number
      • Desired due date and time (this is very important)
      • Desired radius of hollow (if applicable)
    • Place the ticket in your skate and leave them on the counter next to the Skate Sharpening Station.  That's it!  Upon pick up, give a rink staff member your name and they will retrieve your skates.
