Ice skating on the Bald Spot
Carls like to make the most of the winter months in Minnesota. A popular activity is ice skating, and the college sets up rinks for both hockey and figure skating on the Bald Spot. The rinks are used by PE classes, intramural teams, or students simply wanting to take a break from their studies.
Sophomore Jesse Barrera-Ledezma hails from Othello, Wash., and says he’s “not a stranger to cold weather conditions during the winter.” He’s taking a beginning skating class at Carleton and loves it. “One of my most exciting experiences this term is my ice skating class. It’s a great way to combat stress, and I’m also learning a lot. Everyone is welcoming and has fun, no matter their skill level, and I’m looking forward to learning some tricks on the ice.”
