On the Eleventh Day of Well-Mas, Santa gave to me Eleven Winter Activities to Enjoy!
Winter is here and it’s time to unpack your snowsuit so you can get outside and take advantage of the things that can only be done this time of year! I know that the outdoors may not seem so inviting when you’re inside wrapped up in a blanket, but just think about all the fun sports and activities you can do in the snow! (Once it arrives!) So dress warm and plan things you can do with family or friends like tobogganing, skating or going skiing. All of these things are great ways to get some physical activity this holiday season while still having fun and spending time with the people you care about. It doesn’t have to be an expensive ski trip either; you can build a snowman or have a snowball fight right in your own backyard!
Don’t shy away from the cold, embrace it! Instead of sitting there wishing you lived somewhere much closer to the equator, think about those who may never see snow in their lifetime and how lucky you are that you get to experience both summer and winter!
Ontario’s largest ski resort, Blue Mountain, is only a two hour drive from Toronto and there are also a few smaller resorts that are only about an hour away. You don’t even have to leave the city if you don’t want to, Earl Bales Park has a ski lift and is just south of Sheppard! There are also many ravines in Toronto that are great for tobogganing – there’s probably even one close to you!
