Winter Exercise Ideas

Be Creative!
Typically, when we think about being physically active outdoors we automatically think of activities done mostly during the summertime. However, there are also a wide range of fun activities perfect for that beautiful winter day. The list of winter recreational activities could include:
  • Ice Skating
  • Building a snowman or fort
  • Sledding/Tubing
  • Snowshoeing
  • Cross country skiing
  • Downhill skiing
  • Snowboarding
One of the wonderful things about being in Utah is that we have a lot of wonderful resources close by. The mountains are easily accessible and can provide hours of entertainment and also a great chance for exercise.

Use Your Resources!
Participating in the activities above does not have to be expensive. For example, the University of Utah has equipment you can rent for a great price. Campus Recreation is the perfect resource to use if you want to try something new without make a large investment of money. You don’t even have to be a student to take advantage of these resources.

For all you BYU fans out there (myself included) Outdoors Unlimited on the BYU campus has similar resources available for all your outdoor recreational needs.
