Winter can be one of the best times to enjoy with family and friends. So whether you are hanging out on the weekend, enjoying Christmas break or just have the day off, here are 10 things some of our experts love to do during the winter months:
1. Skiing or Snowboarding
Drive out to your local ski resort and hit the slopes. There is no better winter day than a “pow” day. Be ready, when the snow hits, head out and enjoy a memorable day on the slopes. To get you started, HERE are some resorts near our SCHEELS stores.
2. Cross Country Skiing
One of the best ways to exercise in the winter is cross country skiing. Don’t have a pair? Stop by your local SCHEELS and rent a pair from our service shop! Read Expert Jenn Bast’s BLOG POST for a tune up or a quick lesson on cross country skiing
