    The water will not go below 32. If it does it will be ice.
    Your ski will be fine for riding.
    If it is being left outside out of the water it will depend if the block is self draining.
    What type of ski do you have?

    actually water can be below 32 deg. and not be frozen!

    that is correct. As long as the water is "moving", you can get as low as 25 before it starts to become "moving" ice.

    Rivers with a significant current (2-3mph) and very cold winters can have this affect.

    are you asking about ridding or sitting outside un winterized?
