How Much is Ice Skating?

What To Wear During Ice Skating?
Skating on the ice can get chilly, so we recommend wrapping up warm and wearing gloves. Even if you’re ice skating in a hot country, the ice rink has to be kept at a low temperature in order for it to be perfect for sliding on. So, an extra layer or two certainly won’t hurt!
How to Ice Skate?
If you’ve ever been roller blading or skiing, then everything you’ve learnt can be thrown out the window! Ice skating requires totally different movements and you’ll be using different muscles to make sure you stay balanced and upright on the ice. However, don’t let that put you off. Ice skating is easy once you get the hang of it. Here are some things to bare in mind to ensure success on the first try:
1. Make sure you’re wearing the right size skates
2.Ensure your skates are secured properly. A member of staff at the rink can help you with this if you’re feeling unsure.
3.Bend your knees a little for balance
4. Don’t be afraid to fall. Trust us on this — the more you worry about falling, the more likely you’ll end up toppling onto the ice!
Does Ice Skating Burn Calories?
You bet! It’s said that you can burn anywhere between 300-600 calories per hour depending how long you skate for and how much effort you put into it.
Is Ice Skating Hard?
Not once you get the hang of it! If you’ve never been before, always remember that you can hang onto the sides if you’re not feeling so confident. A couple of times around the rink and we guarantee you’ll start finding your feet.
Is Ice Skating Dangerous?
Not if you follow the rules of the ice rink and take care to mind other people.
