ICE Skating with SSSK

Register Here: 

It is absolutely “POETIC” and “MAGICAL” when one skates long distance on a frozen lake or sea (read > 40km)! You can’t skate? You have an opportunity to learn this beautiful, yet simple out-door sport.

We bring you an exciting event. This is organized in association with Stockholms Skridskoseglarklubb (SSSK). Here, we give you an opportunity to learn long-distance Ice Skating from the professional Ice Skaters group from Stockholm. For those, who know Ice Skating, can join us for fun anyways. 🙂

Must Wear: Sturdy Shoes. 

Some Practical Information:

  • Meeting Point 5 Lindstedtsvägen, at 19.00 (sharp, not quarter.)
  • We will walk to Östermalms IP


  • Professional help from SSSK (No experience required. SSSK will help!). Great opportunity to learn cross country Ice Skating if you don’t already know it.
  • Few Skates available to be borrowed
  • Rental Facility of Skates at the venue is available
  • Open to all PhD Students!

Opportunity to bring ‘+1’ (you can also ask your PhD Supervisors)

Important: Safety is the most important aspect. PhD Chapter recommends that every participant must wear a helmet (cycle helmets are fine too) and some knee protection.

For any other information please email us: with the subject ICE-Skating.

Survey – gift card winners drawn!

We would like to thank all 604 PhD students who have taken their time to fill out our survey! We have now drawn the five lucky winners of the gift cards and notified them through their email (so check your inbox for an email from to see if you are one of them).

At the beginning of the new year, the PhD Chapter board will work with analyzing and reporting the results.

We have, however, already seen that some of you wished we would organize more sports events. If you are in the mood for some winter sports, please join us on Wednesday, when we go ice-skating! There are still some spots left, use this link to sign-up and learn more on our facebook page.

Happy Holidays from the PhD Chapter!
