    Water has its melting point lowered due to increase of pressure. Water Liquefy under increased pressure and resolidify on removal of the excess pressure. When the skater skates the weight of the skater and the skates liquefy the ice under the skates. As soon as the skate has moved, the pressure over the ice is not there and it resolidifies.
