Skiing and hockey skating got a lot in common there actually.

Rollerblading is a plus...but that sorta depends on what your rollerblading with. I had normal fitness blades and that didn't quite have the feel as ice skating. Roller hockey skates did on the other hand with the hi-lo wheel set up.

Some tips...learn to fall once you do that, don't be afraid to let go of the wall or you'll never learn. Gliding is the key. Stop by doing a snow-plow and adding pressure to the front foot. Maybe try skating backwards and go from there...some people find that easier to do for some reason.
