Abstract Winter forces people to adapt to snow and ice conditions and understand the regularities in nature in the cold regions. The understanding of ice and snow regularities can help to improve the safety of moving over ice. The objective of this work was to investigate the impact of ice texture on the static coefficient of friction for stainless steel samples with different surface roughness under laboratory conditions. The ice was prepared flatted, scratched and glazed to represent the various ice textures which might appear in real-life situations. The samples were prepared as rectangular stainless steel blocks with different surface roughness. Contact area between the sample and the ice was considered as the most influential factor. A larger contact area resulted in a higher static coefficient of friction. This outcome provides useful information for working in surroundings with ice.
