The old rink in Ames (Iowa) used to have tremendously tall boards - even some of our college-aged ACHA players would have trouble with those.

Of course, what I remember about the old rink in Ames was that the ice was crooked - if I was standing in my crease in my natural stance, I would slowly drift towards the downhill part of the rink (the side with the player benches). I had to stand in a permanent sort of t-stop to prevent it.
