Winter Sports

Winter’s almost here and that means snow! One of the best ways to take advantage of our prettiest season is to get outdoors and enjoy it. Take a look at this list of common outdoor winter sports, and see if one of them doesn’t get you excited about everyone’s favorite time of year – winter!

  • Ice Skating: Whether you’re doing for a leisurely romantic skate around the pond with a loved one, or shredding ice with your friends, ice skating is THE classic way to enjoy the outdoors in winter. Don’t own a pair of skates? No problem. If there’s an ice rink close to where you live, the chances are they rent skates. If you’d rather buy a pair, you can usually find a decent set at a used sporting goods store for around $50.

  • Downhill Skiing/Snowboarding: Talk about a way to get the blood pumping! There’s nothing quite like hurdling down a mountain at over 40mph on just two skis! Of course, if you’re not the racing type, there’s always the bunny hill. Or, for you ski-bunnies, warm yourself by the fire back at the chalet.

  • Sledding: Now this is a sport the whole family can get in on! Not to mention, “sleds” have come a long way from your grandfather’s “rosebud.” In fact, modern snow sleds run the gamut from high-speed inflatable discs to larger “triple sleds” that can accommodate up to three people.

  • Snowshoeing: If you’ve never tried snowshoeing, now’s your chance! Snowshoeing is a fantastic way to get outdoors on a crisp winter day to enjoy the weather and scenery. Entire families, regardless of their age, can participate in this age-old sport, and it’s great exercise.

  • Snowmobiling: If snowshoeing isn’t your speed, but instead you crave a little more excitement, give snowmobiling a try. Often equipped with engines on par with a motorcycle, snowmobiles can usually accommodate up to 4 people, making them great for the whole family. You can take trails marked out by experienced snowmobilers, or you can make a trail of your own! The possibilities are endless.

  • Ice Fishing: Perhaps the most relaxing of all winter sports, ice fishing is a real treat. It gives those involved the opportunity to spend time getting to know one another, making it perfect for families. Kids will love to learn how to fish, while adults will appreciate the opportunity to chat in the tranquility of an open lake.  

No matter how you choose to enjoy this winter season, make sure you have fun!
