Skate the Lake Update

We had to cancel Skate the Lake but we are super excited about the skate the Lake Challenge. Read the full press release on our Facebook page,

Oval Update

We will be starting on the oval this week. We will post skating conditions as soon as there is ice for skating. The status of our event weekend will also be decided  this week.

Skate the Lake Challenge 2022

Last year we introduced the Skate the Lake Challenge and while we plan our regular Skate the Lake weekend January 29 and 30, we will also do the challenge again as long as the oval is open, skate as many laps as you can or like and submit them to us. We will keep track of your total kilometres and compare them to everyone else in the challenge. Last year 21 participants skated 1,433 kilometres combined. That's from Portland to Thunder Bay!


Would you like to donate to Skate the Lake. All the details are available here.

In 2009, Rick Mercer visited Portland. As you can see, it was a great day.

This would not be possible without community support.


Have you been skating a lot?  We hope so, your $25 donation will help with all the little things that ad up over the course of a season. 

Thank you


We can't thank you enough, with the rising cost of insurance and equipment your $100 donation is helping us pay the bills incurred each winter by our team of local volunteers.

Thank you
