4 Ways to Stay Warm in the Ice Skating Rink , Randolph, New Jersey

For fans of ice skating, the rink is an exciting pastime that is also a great way to stay in shape during the winter months. Before you hit the ice, it’s important to know how to stay warm while practicing your best moves. Randolph, NJ’s Aspen Ice shares four ways to keep warm while spending time in the ice skating rink.

How to Keep Warm it the Ice Skating Rink

1. Socks

Carry a few backup pairs in case your feet sweat or get wet on the ice. Also, choose socks that are long enough to stay up with your skates and won’t roll or bunch. Select a pair with medium thickness; too thick or thin of a pair will be uncomfortable while you skate.

2. Leggings

Warm leggings are your best choice on the ice. Leggings are comfortable and stretchy, allowing you to move freely. Avoid shorts and rigid fabrics. Leggings come in different thicknesses, so choose a pair that is not too thin. Some pairs even have a thin fur or wool lining to keep you warm and dry.

3. Insoles

Sheepskin insoles for your skates offer wool-lined comfort that is warm, soft, and waterproof, an excellent feature for sweaty feet and melting, slushy ice from your skates. It also reduces the need to change your socks multiple times in a skating session. The extra padding also staves off any soreness when you’ve been skating a while.

4. Fleece or Turtleneck

Heavy jackets will limit your mobility and, because you are moving, you will feel too warm. A lighter jacket or fleece will keep your body insulated and free to skate. Always dress in layers, so you can add or remove as needed. Turtlenecks and long-sleeved shirts are also recommended.

Aspen Ice is a top choice for children and adults looking for a fun, convenient ice skating rink. The facility provides figure skating lessons, as well as youth hockey programs and open sessions, making it a great way for the whole family to spend time together while getting a little exercise. They also provide summer camp options during the warmer months. Call (973) 927-9122 or visit them online to learn their public skating schedule.
