And just a little bit crazy, with the skiing uphill. Mme-Hart 8 years SKIING!! :woohoo: Yay! Marci 8 years I don't do winter. redsugar 8 years We have no snow. It barely freezes. Winter sports are the same as summer sports here. My vote is for soccer with my boy. 7bits 8 years i said I hated snow but only when I'm lying face-down in it... Butrfly4404 8 years I know, bluejeanie...santa brought the kids their first sleds...they used them to haul muddy snow to the front yard to make a snowman :( tra 8 years Skiing all the way! My husband used to be a ski instructor but sadly...it hasn't snowed once here in the Poconos! It's also been so warm here that man-made snow can't be made! bluejeanie 8 years our winter here in mn has been LAME this year. actually, it's been lame-o for a few years...i hope my kids get to see snow oneday Fitness 8 years Carsandparties - That is great. I started skiing as an adult and want to encourage you to take a lesson (group lessons are way cheaper than privates). They are so helpful and the instructors are always more helpful than friends, boyfriends, or husbands. Have fun!!! I think you are going to love it!!! kimretta 8 years I'm going to try downhill skiing for the very first time this winter! I'm totally terrified, though. crispet1 8 years :SKI: caramel-latte 8 years I really want to try snow shoeing! But living in San Francisco you have to drive a while to get to the snowy places. And this winter has been eerily warm - everywhere. It was 70 degrees in New York City recently!! That is so not normal. rubialala 8 years Cross-country, baby!!! It's the best. Community-Manager 8 years Speaking of figure skating... has there been any competitions on TV as of late? I'm not sure when the season starts/ends? mandyjean 8 years I love figure skating! iffermay 8 years Does working out at the Y count? I actually live in frigid (typically) MN, and if it does manage to snow, it can be unbearably cold! So, whatever I do outside, it doesn't last long. So, I guess I will go with ice skating since I signed my boys up for lessons. Linda-McP 8 years Snow shoeing is wonderful--and it takes very little skill. Honestly, if you can walk, you can snow shoe. Now, if only we'd get some snow in western PA! Community-Manager 8 years I just like wearing the cute outfits! lol GiggleSugar 8 years Snow makes me want to hide inside, drink hot toddies, and eat fondue by the open fire. SportySugar, I am not:( Community-Manager 8 years I can't wait to go snowboarding next month in beautiful Whister! I am determined to get good! :p DStirk 8 years i have never been so sore as when i tried a 5 hour snow boarding lesson... i am nore fitted (ha, not pun intended fit) to be in the ski lodge drinking irish whisky and preparing lunch for everyone out on the slopes. maybe i should be reading yum, more?! scratch5 8 years My sister lives in MN and has compained about the same thing. I like to alpine ski and am thinking of trying telemarking. My friends who live in the mountains love it. I am looking for more input so - any advice out there? Butrfly4404 8 years This was the first year I was adamant about getting out and doing winter activities (my mom was going to make a rink on her lake to skate) but in MN our winter has been pretty much RAIN. :( Can't do nice-weather stuff, can't do cold-weather stuff.
