Skating is a winter sport and it is exercised on the ice with the travelers on a device with runners on ice slides. The optimum temperature for ice skating is about -7°C. Of course, you can skate in the temperature range between 0°C and -30°C but in this case one should take the thick of the ice into account as the runners by developing friction heat it and bear huge weight.

The locomotion is done when the skater with one leg slips and rejects with the other. As the runners cut the ice it is also possible to cut it at the angle of about 45°. Skating is traditionally exercised in Russia, Scandinavia, Germany, Switzerland and Great Britain.

The ice skating category is the artistic skating when someone makes the best jumps and most gracious moves. Also the ice hockey is also a very popular kind of sports nowadays. Depending on the area of application the skates are structured differently. Skates for speed skating, for instance, have long skids, hockey skates, on the contrary, are strongly curved.

Skating can be seen in many ice sports halls of different countries but it is also possible to link it with a winter trip. In classical skating countries like Scandinavia, Sweden or Germany holiday houses or accommodation are often offered directly on the lake banks, where the skating experience is even more intensive and people can enjoy the beauty of the nature.
