"To go ice-skating can be a wonderful experience that many people in Sweden are enjoying."
"But it's shifting winter weather right now, make the ice treacherous."
"– You should always observe vigilance when going out on the ice, because ice is a perishable commodity. The surfaces froze for just a few days ago takes a lot of beating by the weather. They are not as stable as the first kärnisen that came when it was really cold, " says Ylva Schöldberg, långfärdsskridskoledare at Friluftsfrämjandet, TT."
"Changing weather as that which now reigns, with sometimes less - and sometimes degrees, making it wise to think for. A possibility if you still want to feel and hear the blades cutting the ice is to check the municipal website for the groomed paths – so long as these are open, they are considered also safe, out Schöldberg."
"– You should never give you out if you are in any doubt or if you lack the knowledge, equipment, and companionship. It is my mantra, " she says."
"It is never possible to safely point out geographical areas where the ice is absolutely safe to go out on. The bearing capacity depends also on, among other things, the river depths and currents, and of snow and local weather conditions."
"Schöldberg also suggest that the local skridskoklubbar have organized fitness tours. And the clubs and the association for the promotion offer beginner courses, " she says."
"– Then you have an opportunity to enjoy the fantastic that it actually is to go ice-skating."
"in Addition to safety equipment, it may also be wise to think on that particular vårisar can be very treacherous. They can be thick enough, but rotten – and then you go still through them."
"What, then, is the best ice road to get from the beginner to the more van riders?"
"Schöldberg point to the many hours required to learn to interpret the ice and the seasons."
"– When I lead groups, I have always an eye and ear on the ice. Then I see if the ice varies in character or color, for example. I hear also on the tons if it starts to thin or thick. But it is with a trained ear and I have a ispik with me and knocking in the ice."
"the Equipment that should be out on the ice:"
"Lifeline supplemented with a förlängningsband and a carabiner."
"Backpack with midjerem and grenrem."
"ice prods with the whistle."
"Waterproof change of clothes, both the jacket and pants, extra layer and a picnic."
