Fun Winter Activities

I’m not too sure about you, but I am definitely more of a Summer person than a Winter person. I just don’t like to be cold. I tend to stay inside for the most part during the cold, Winter months. But let’s face it, a lot of people aren’t like me, and really enjoy Winter because of the fun activities you can participate in. Two fun activities that come to mind that I’ve found are popular during winter are snowboarding and snow tubing.

First of all, there is snowboarding. I actually learned this back when I was a freshman in high school because the guy I liked was a snowboarding instructor. Now before you think I’m just one of those girls, I will admit that even when we weren’t seeing each other any more I still went snowboarding because I enjoyed it. However, I’ll be the first to admit that the first few times you go snowboarding, when you are first learning, can be a bit miserable as you are on your butt most of time from falling so much. That being said, you want to make sure you have the proper gear so you don’t completely hate the experience. Snowboard Shop in Atlanta is just the place to go for your snowboarding goods. They have everything you could possibly need including: snowboards, boots, bindings, goggles, helmets, mens and womens jackets, mens and womens pants, youth outerwear, base layers, tech fleece and so much more! Not only are their products practical but they are also stylish.

Second, there is snow tubing. This is where individuals ride down snow covered slopes on an air-filled rubber tube. It is fun because you can really get going fast as your tube accelerates down the slope! Once you reach the bottom of the slope, you drag your tube usually to a little lift that helps to carry you back up to the top of the slope. It is best to be prepared for colder weather since you are up in the mountains so it is best to wear water-resistant clothes. Snow pants and snow jackets are preferred so that you can stay dry and warm throughout the day. Also it is important to layer your clothes, so that you can take off or add to as necessary throughout your time tubing. I know from personal experience the importance of this since as the day goes along you might get warmer from all the movement, but as the day winds down the weather tends to cool off again. Don’t forget to bring a hat and gloves as well to keep your head and hands warm and happy. Snow tubing has been around as a fun winter sport for quite awhile. It is rumored that snow tubing began as far back as 1820, that’s a long time for people to have been enjoying this awesome activity. This is a fun activity where the individual rides on a round rubber tube down a snowy slope. I know all about this fun activity since it actually is a holiday tradition of my family’s to go tubing on Christmas Eve. So try something new and give snowboarding or snow tubing a try if you are looking for great Winter activities.
