Instructor: Teemu Tenhunen

First theory about Nordic skating and security issues. Skating trip, when the lakes and ponds freeze over.

The course requires good skating skills. Each participant must have a 30-litre backpack with a waist tie, ice awls and two complete outdoor outfit sets. Ski poles are also necessary. Normally also ice poles are needed on Nordic skating courses, but ski poles have been sufficient on the University courses.

On the course, students get familiar with the structure of ice and how to read it, the equipment, safe moving on ice, planning and realizing a skating trip, having skating as a hobby and the skating locations of the Central Finland.

The course includes two or three parts. It starts on 22 November with a three-hour lesson about safety, equipment and places to skate. Further actions will also be agreed on the lesson. A four-hour skating trip will be agreed separately in accordance with ice situation.
According to interest, it is possible to practice falling through the ice and rescuing yourself either in connection of the skating trip or in a separate session.

We borrow the skates from the sport club KENSU. Price is about 10 euros.
