New Year’s Eve Winterhawks Skate Rental Details:  

  • If you rented skates, they will be available at the event level of the Moda Center after the Winterhawks game on New Year’s Eve. You will then be able to return the skates that night as you leave the ice.

It all leads to a live countdown to midnight on the arena’s big screen, when there will be a balloon drop. Join us!
