The Enemy Of Ice

Snow is the enemy of ice.

The enemy of ice: Snow

When snow is allowed to accumulate, it forms an insulating blanket over the ice and slows the formation of crystals below the surface. The weight of the snow also depresses the ice surface. That is why, after a snowfall, the maintenance crew is quick to get to work on the Skateway with snow blowers and snowplows to clear away the snow.
