True confessions of Carla: I hate being cold and winter can be a challenge for me. I grew up in Utah, so freezing temperatures should be old hat. But about this time each January, the excitement of Christmas is fading and our “Winter Wonderland” makes me wonder why I live here.
However, a couple years ago, a friend of mine encouraged me to take up skiing and since then I actually look forward to that first snowstorm and obsessively check the new snow accumulation at Utah ski resorts. (Side confession: That friend was a cute boy and I wanted him to fall in love me…fortunately, I surprised myself and truly love skiing and he did in fact fall in love with me! So…big win/win!!)
The moral of this story is that winter becomes a whole lot more enjoyable if you take advantage of the great outdoor activities we have access to during those cold winter months. So, where to start? The Provo City Library has created a great list of winter activities and events just for you!
On our What To Do In the Winter page, after scrolling past all the amazing Christmas activities that you should really check out next year, you will find a whole list of ways and places to have fun in the snow and cold. You'll find information about:
- Cross-country skiing
- Sleigh rides
- Sled dog rides
- Ice skating
Don’t get cabin fever this year! Get out and take advantage of the greatest snow on earth!
