When the first frost appears in the weather forecast at the end of November a lot of people can’t wait any longer for it: skating on natural ice! Will it happen this winter or not? People who have little or no interest in the weather for nine months each year are now daily even hourly finding there way to MeteoVista for the latest forecast. And this doesn't even change even once they are standing on the ice. Now they want to know how long the joys of skating will continue and even more important they start speculating over the ultimate skating question: will there be a Dutch 'Elfstedentocht', the largest ice skating tour in Europe?
