The fields are in heavy use. There are clearly more skaters than in previous years, says the City of Helsinki’s sports venue manager Petteri Huurre. There should now also be space on the ice for everyone who wants to.

“When the natural ice rinks were put in order, there were no more queues,” Huurre says.

Still in December the queues for the most popular artificial ice rinks grew to tens of meters in length.

Hard work is now being done. According to Huurte, large man-made ice rinks with staff are plowed at their best almost every hour.
