The Broadmoor Skating Club [1] is a figure skating club based in Colorado Springs, Colorado that has long been a major training center for the sport of figure skating. Founded in 1939, it was originally known as the Pikes Peak Skating Club, and was based in the Broadmoor World Arena on the grounds of The Broadmoor resort. When that facility was demolished in 1994, the club moved to its current home at the Colorado Springs World Arena.

Prominent coaches associated with the club have included Tom Dickson, Carlo Fassi, Sandy Hess, Dalilah Sappenfield, Edi Scholdan, and Tom Zakrajsek. The club has benefitted in recent years from its proximity to both the United States Figure Skating Association headquarters and the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

The club hosted the U.S. Figure Skating Championships six times between 1948 and 1976, and the World Figure Skating Championships five times during the same period, at the Broadmoor World Arena facility. More recently, the club has hosted events such as the World Junior Figure Skating Championships, the Four Continents Championships, Skate America, and the Grand Prix Final.
