Winter Activities

 

 

With the winter season upon us it is time for us all to prepare our trips away from the warm and dull Central Valley and head for the mountains where it actually feels like winter.
One of the most fun aspects of winter is the presence of that all too popular fluffy form of precipitation: snow. And when the snow starts falling, people start playing.
For the younger crowd, there are the classic winter activities such as sledding and snowball fights. It is always entertaining to sit yourself down on a giant plastic dish, slide off the edge of a massive hill and hold on for dear life. As for the snowball fights, pretty self-explanatory: ball up some snow, then pelt your friends with said snowball. Pretty fun.
For the young adult crowd there are several fan-favorite sports to partake in that ramp up the level of excitement from sledding and snowballs. Skiing and/or snowboarding have been a staple of recreational winter sports since their respective inceptions. There is nothing more thrilling than locking yourself on to a board (or two if you’re skiing) and shooting yourself off the top of a mountain.
If you’re not as spry as you used to be, there are other winter activities that don’t require you to attempt something that can at time seem death defying. Ice fishing hasn’t exactly been synonymous with riveting, but for those who truly enjoy the artwork fishing can be, this is for you. There is also the sport made popular by the winter Olympics: ice skating.
These kinds of activities are something fun for all ages, and perhaps more importantly, fun for the whole family. After all, what is more important during the Christmas season than spending time with your family. Merry Christmas to all, and to all, have an awesome winter break.
