Apparently you take a contraption that resembles a regular bicycle and where the wheels should be you will find wood that resembles snow boards. You then proceed to rocket down a mountainous slop until you get to the bottom, doing all manner of tricks and flips. For those of you that are more visual look at this Snow Scooting video
Now this sounds like fun – if you want a premature date with destiny! So I started thinking what activities are out there for more, well, sane folks, like us. And here are some of the more ‘I don’t feel like dying yet’ style of activities:
One of the more popular activities is Snowshoeing, personally I think this is a great activity for all ages. If you like walking you will love Snowshoeing. Even if you don’t have the right shoes, you can rent them almost anywhere out door gear is sold. A simple ‘Google’ search will point you in the right direction.
Another fun and much neglected activity is ice fishing, if you like dropping a line in the summer you will adore the challenge and tranquility of ice fishing. I recommend you only do this activity at recognized ice fishing spots, a great resource for this is Ice Fishing World
The main thing to remember when participating in any winter activities is to dress appropriately. Wear many layers with a thermal base layer, so if you get hot while exercising you can peel back a layer or two and not become too exposed.
Getting out there and participating in the magic of winter is a sure fire way to bet the winter blues and we must not forget, we need to keep our bodies active and flexible.
Till next time, keep safe.
