If you want to get good at ice, the first thing is to try and quit roller. Turning and stopping requiring proper edge use and control. Roller blades don't have edges. Every time I see someone who plays roller on ice, they have edge control problems. I've played roller before, because sometimes, there is no ice, but if possible get as much ice as you can and stop the roller for a while.
