Skiing and snowboarding are some of the most exciting outdoor sports of the winter season!

Skiing and snowboarding are very popular winter activities. The most popular times to go are between late November and early April, the perfect time also depends on the snowfall. Winter break is a great time to ski and snowboard with friends and family!

The equipment you need to ski are skis, ski boots, goggles, a helmet and ski poles. For snowboarding, you need a snowboard and bindings, along with a helmet and goggles. Equipment is also available to rent from ski resorts if needed. 

Seven Springs is a great local area to go skiing and snowboarding. Located in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, Seven Springs is ranked 16th for the East coast and ranked 191st for total snowfall in North America. 

If you have never participated in anything that the resort offers, Seven Springs offers ski and snowboarding lessons to all ages and ability levels by experienced instructors. 

If Seven Springs is not enough, Vail Ski Resort in Colorado ranks 1st in the United States for skiing and snowboarding. Vail is very well-known and has been visited by some of the world’s best skiers and snowboarders, even Olympians. 

The 2022 Winter Olympics are starting on February 4, 2022,  so if you love watching just as much as actually skiing, watch the world’s best skiers and snowboarders compete for a gold medal in Beijing. 

Skiing and snowboarding are great activities to try out this winter or over the holidays. Be safe and stay warm!
