Nordic Skate  Nordic skate is strictly ice and all about nordic ice skating. All stills and motion is mostly shot on FujiFilm Cameras and GoPro by @sollerman.

In Norway we say:
Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlige klær.. (there is no bad weather, only bad clothing)

Well, the season is facing the bitter end. Today was a wet day on the ice. Hopefully we will have som days (or better yet, weeks) before we start to plan for next season. But this past year I met so many nice and knowledgeable people on the ice, behind a camera, brands, in a studio, online…and in a bar:) And all wants to skate, know more about Nordic Skating and contribute to spreading the word that what we do is a fantastic way to explore nature! This is my tribute to all of them! .

Here in Norway the date 22nd of february is sometimes called Per varmestein. It’s the date when the ice starts to melt. The saying is based on when St. Peter threw hot stones into frozen water so that the ice loosened.
It is still some days left until the 22nd....
But the past weekend in Sweden you could see that the ice had open areas and had started to transform. The crystal structure in the ice changes. Long vertical crystals are formed with poor bonding between the crystals. The crystals become hollow and partly filled with water. The process starts on the surface and works downwards. This ice is called stavis because of the rod-shaped crystals, but is also referred to as spring ice. So lets hope that we will get some cold nights with clear sky the following weeks , because i’m planning to skate much more this winter!
Funny...my name is Per, but i refuse to have Per varmestein as my nickname!

Black ice abstinence!
It’s been raining for 2 days now and it’s getting colder. Hopefully we can start skate again..... .
