A Guide to Outdoor Winter Fun!
When the forecast is calling for snow, snow and more snow, don’t fight it. Get out there, suit up in the right gear and enjoy all that Winter has to offer!
Cross-Country or Downhill Skiing
Skiing is the ultimate winter activity, so if you're game, head to a local hill and rent some gear for the day. If downhill isn't your thing, take a leisurely cross-country ski through the woods.
|Beebo & Xman received some used cross-country skis for Christmas, |
so we're super excited to use them up at the cabin this week!
Grab a sled and trek to the top of that perfectly powdered hill. Tobogganing is a great family activity that everyone can enjoy; nothing beats the thrill of sliding down a snowy white hill. What’s your toboggan of choice? The classic wooden style? The faster and more unpredictable flying saucer, or maybe a sleek crazy carpet?
For a calmer experience, a nice skate around a local outdoor rink is a great way to enjoy an afternoon outdoors with your kids.
If the snow is particularly deep, why not try snowshoeing? Modern snowshoes are inexpensive, snap onto all boots and are a fun and interesting way to walk across deep snow without sinking. In fact, snowshoes are a great way to get to the top of a toboggan hill safely and quickly.
If staying closer to home seems more appealing, building a snow fort with the kids in the yard is a classic winter activity. Packing snow into bread tins is fun way to make snow bricks for building the best fortress on the block.
When playing in the snow, there’s bound to be slips and falls, and not every toboggan run ends in a fluffy pile of snow. So when your day is done, reach for Rub A535™ to soothe and relax tense muscles, so you can do it all over again tomorrow.
