Winter can be a tough time for athletes. It’s hard to get motivated when it’s cold, and storms can make trails and roads slick or impassable. Plus, downhill skiing and snowboarding can be expensive and inconvenient at times.
It’s no excuse to stay indoors all season long, though. If you’re willing to get creative, snow and ice can actually make your workouts more fun. From the tame to the exotic, these alternative winter sports will keep you outside and in shape until all the snow finally melts away.
