A lot of people might think that when December is over, winter is over. But that is definitely not the case. According to, spring doesn’t start until March 20th. During these last few months of winter, there are many different winter sports you can try out to stay productive. Some are outside, and some you can do inside! You can also do these sports almost anywhere in Utah! Some of these winter sports include ice skating, hockey, snowboarding, sledding, skiing, and snowshoeing.

Ice skating is one of the winter sports that you can do inside or outside. It is also a great way to stay productive and have fun during the winter. Ice skating is also included in other sports like hockey, which you can also do inside or outside. Both of these winter sports are also included in the winter Olympics. You can try out these sports at Peaks Ice Arena in Provo, just 20 minutes away!

Snowboarding and sledding are also good ways to stay productive in this cold weather. It helps with exercise because you have to walk back up steep hills to try again. You can go sledding and snowboarding at Peteetneet in Payson, or on any steep hill that is safe near you. Skiing is another great way to stay fit and is also included in the winter Olympics.

Lastly there is snowshoeing. Snowshoeing is basically hiking, except you’re going through the snow. The snowshoes are supposed to help you keep your feet from sinking into the deep, cold, and wet snow. If you love hiking and you love snow, snowshoeing is the winter sport for you!

As you can see, there are many different winter sports that are fun, and easy to get to! If you’re not so into the normal sports, you can try some of these! These are just some out of many different ways to stay productive during the cold winter.
