I happen to disagree.The reason people slip on ice is that they are used to putting their weight on their heel first. Putting the weight on the ball of your front foot and semi-tip-toeing is the best way. Just try to keep the weight off your heels. I even reach out with my front foot to do it. I've never fallen doing it this way. EVER.
