It’s easy to let winter get the best of you, but, with the right gear, it is a beautiful time of year! Get involved in an outdoor winter sport, it makes the time go by a lot faster when you are doing an activity you enjoy. My personal favorites are downhill skiing, snowmobiling, and just taking a good hike. Give it a try!


Enjoy these photos from my hike!
