These are some of my favorite winter adventures that I tried last winter while living in Michigan. They are listed in no particular order because they were each special in their own way. Each unique adventure gave me the opportunity to meet people in diverse subcultures and try activities that were not part of my everyday world.
Yep, you can experience the rush that Olympians have as they glide down the ice at rapid speeds. Your speed is not as fast or as high but it is still extrememly fun.

3. Driving a Dog Sled
It’s not everyday that you get to drive a dog sled. This was at a private residence but you can try the experience at several resorts in Michigan.

This is where shuffleboard meets ice.

5. Polar Bearing in Ice
Apologies for our elementary aged camera guy. You know it’s cold when they have to cut a hole in the ice for you to get in.

6. Moms Hockey
Don’t let little things like not be able to skate backwards keep you from the ice.
