Great Outdoor Winter Activities

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 a large investment of money. You don’t even have to be a student to take advantage of these resources.

You can enjoy the great outdoors down in Utah County by taking advantage of the resources at Outdoors Unlimited on the BYU campus. They carry similar resources for rent to meet all your outdoor recreational needs. Even if you are up in the Cache Valley area, Utah State University's Campus Recreation has great outdoor gear for rent.

No matter where you are in the state, you can take advantage of the great outdoors by using local resources to make your outdoor adventure both fun and inexpensive.
