C. Douglas Cairns Recreation Arena — Cairns Arena is home to both the men’s and women’s Saint Michael’s College hockey teams, the University of Vermont club hockey team, and scads of local high school and junior-league squads. It’s a good bet that many of the players on those teams, not to mention a fair number of local figure and speed skaters, got their first taste of the ice at the two-rink arena. Cairns has been a destination for Burlington-area skaters — and the occasional curling club — since it opened in 1995, thanks to immaculately maintained ice, friendly staff, affordable equipment rentals and, believe it or not, a surprisingly tasty snack bar.
