All you need to do is buy or rent snowshoes from a reliable outdoor retailer and find outdoor trails to explore.This low-impact workout is a perfect way to take in the snowy scenery.

Ice skating 

For a truly family-friendly winter activity,rent some skates and venture out on the snow for some ice skating fun.You can look for groomed lagoons or lakes in your vicinity for a more unique ice skating experience.

Backcountry ice skating opportunities can also be considered for those interested in an ice skating experience on a larger scale. Check with local park offices on the snow conditions before venturing out for a backcountry ice skating trip.

Ice fishing 

Fishing is no longer an activity that can be enjoyed only in the summer months. Today this has become a popular winter sport, especially for older children who live close to a frozen pond or lake.

Though this activity requires a bit of planning and awareness about surface ice conditions,ice fishing can train the angler to be patient and learn to concentrate while enjoying the outdoors at the same time.
