Ice skating requires you to be very strong. Many muscles are used, i know since I am a figure skater myself. You have to have a very strong core, and....well basically a really strong upper body. Your thighs, calves, and glutes must also be strong, as well as your ankles(not a muscle but they are definitely used!). These muscles help you jump, hold you upright in the air, and keep you strong while spinning! Hope this helps. <3 :)
