Kal Tire Place Information

The Venue

Welcome to Kal Tire Place where sports and recreation excellence takes place year round!

The NHL and International sized rink provides all Skating, Ringette and Hockey opportunities and serves as the home of the Vernon Vipers and visiting teams of the BCHL.  Kal Tire Place, however, is more than just an ice rink. There is a boardroom, and the “Grand Room” that suit meetings, banquets and birthday parties perfectly. As well, the ice can be easily transformed to accommodate an array of events such as concerts, dances and even rodeos. With 3006 seats and standing room for approximately 500, there have been some loud crowds here!

Disabled seating for 64 persons is located around the concourse. Portable chairs are upholstered and interlocking for use on the arena floor (total depends on event set-up).

Retractable seating on the south-west side of the building enables the opening of the standard ice surface (85’ x 200’) to International size ice (100′ x 200′) and also provides the facility an open floor space of 20,500 sq ft..
