Ice skating session delayed due to cloudy weather in Shimla

A red balloon would be afloat atop the roof of Shimla Municipal Corporation building on the Ridge, signalling that the session has started.

The minimum temperature of Shimla was varying between five and eight degrees while the maximum day temperature touched 20 degree, diluting the hardness of ice to be comfortable for skaters to slide smoothly on the frozen water.

A trial run was held this morning but it was not fully successful and the organisers hoped that regular sessions would would commence from tomorrow.

Shimla Ice Skating rink was the biggest natural ice skating in the country spread over area comprising five tennis courts at Blessington grounds.

The Ice Skating started at this rink in 1920 and the legacy of erstwhile British era is continuing and it has become a commoner's sport during the winters for locals as well as tourists.

"The thrill of sliding on ice cannot be explained and skaters enjoy the warmth of ice while the other shivers even sitting before the fire place," says Prof Madan Sharma, an ace skater of yesteryears. (MORE)
