Why is it difficult to walk on ice?

We are able to walk because friction acts between our feet and the ground in the opposite direction. Friction helps to get the grip without slipping. More the friction more is the grip. As the surface ice is smooth, friction is less resulting in the lesser grip. Therefore it is difficult to walk on ice.
