Ice Chalet Seeks Former Skaters for 50th Anniversary Celebration If you ever skated at the Ice Chalet in Knoxville, Tenn., you know it is a special place filled with half a century of wonderful memories. On July 21, the Ice Chalet will kick off a yearlong cel -ebration of its 50th anniversary with “A Celebration and Reunion” featuring on-ice dancing to the tunes of the past and an outdoor dinner gathering. The Ice Chalet was one of the first two skating rinks in the South to offer regularly scheduled public sessions. A year after the rink opened, a German skating professional named Robert Unger happened to visit Knoxville while on tour with Holiday On Ice, and he decided to stay and make the town and its new Ice Chalet his new home. He estab -lished the renowned Robert Unger School of Ice Skating and was instrumental in the de -velopment of the testing standards still in use by the Ice Skating Institute. The Ice Chalet also was home to one of the first ISI-endorsed recreational ice skating competitions. Many Ice Chalet students and teachers have achieved individual success in the skating world as competitors, performers and instructors. The facility has been updated through the years but retains its chalet-style charm. The mirror ball is still at center ice, the fireplace still burns real wood and the mural on the wall still welcomes visitors.

Ice Chalet Seeks Former Skaters For 50th Anniversary Celebration

If you ever skated at the Ice Chalet in Knoxville, Tenn., you know it is a special place filled with half a century of wonderful memories.

On July 21, the Ice Chalet will kick off a yearlong celebration of its 50th anniversary with “A Celebration and Reunion” featuring on-ice dancing to the tunes of the past and an outdoor dinner gathering.

The Ice Chalet was one of the first two skating rinks in the South to offer regularly scheduled public sessions. A year after the rink opened, a German skating professional named Robert Unger happened to visit Knoxville while on tour with Holiday On Ice, and he decided to stay and make the town and its new Ice Chalet his new home. He established the renowned Robert Unger School of Ice Skating and was instrumental in the development of the testing standards still in use by the Ice Skating Institute. The Ice Chalet also was home to one of the first ISI-endorsed recreational ice skating competitions.

Many Ice Chalet students and teachers have achieved individual success in the skating world as competitors, performers and instructors.

The facility has been updated through the years but retains its chalet-style charm. The mirror ball is still at center ice, the fireplace still burns real wood and the mural on the wall still welcomes visitors.
