Enjoy the Snowy Season with these Excellent Outdoor Adventures  

In Northeast Ohio, there’s no shortage of outdoor activities that celebrate snow. Just visit Cleveland’s winter sports mecca, Boston Mills/Brandywine Ski Resort (www.bmbw.com), which celebrated 50 years of skiing in 2013. With 88 total skiable acres, these adjacent resorts reside in the majestic Cuyahoga Valley National Park, offering skiing, snowboarding, and the Polar Blast Snow Tubing park at Brandywine, which has 20 lanes and conveyer lifts for tubing enthusiasts of all ages.

If nostalgic sled rides are more your style, try tobogganing at the Cleveland Metroparks Mill Stream Run Reservation in Strongsville (www.clevelandmetroparks.com/main/toboggan-chutes.aspx). Fulfill your need for downhill speed with two 1,000-ft, refrigerated ice chutes ready every weekend.

Speaking of ice (or rather a silicon-based polymer that looks and works like ice), the Rink at Wade Oval is a unique faux ice skating rink right next to Cleveland’s cultural epicenter, University Circle (www.universitycircle.org). Admission is free and skate rentals are only $3.

Work up a similar sweat snowshoeing or cross-country skiing throughout the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, starting at the Winter Sports Center at Kendall Lake Shelter (www.nps.gov/cuva). Gear rental is available daily when conditions are ideal.
