Well I can't repeat this too often! Make sure your on the safe side of the skating experience. Her are two dangers to have a look at: The first danger in ice skating is falling on the ice, which definately dependents on the quality of the ice surface and the skill and experience of the skater. An additional danger of falling is injury caused by the skater's own metal blades or those of other skaters.

The second, and more serious, danger is falling through the ice into the freezing water underneath when skating outdoors on a frozen body of water. This can lead to serious injury or death due to shock, hypothermia or drowning. It is often difficult or impossible for skaters to climb out of the water back onto the ice due to the ice repeatedly breaking, the skater being weighed down by skates and thick winter clothing, or the skater becoming disoriented under water.

Address: All the ditches, canals and lakes in Hoogeveen.
Directions: The greater Hoogeveen area.
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
