Snowshoeing, skating, walking great way to be active

Staying active, even during the winter months is important. 

With fluctuating temperatures, it can be a challenge to make sure you are dressed appropriately and are getting enough daily movement. Having fun with winter activities makes living in a cold climate much more enjoyable.

Taking your dog for a walk, snowshoeing, skating, sledding or building a fort are just a few outdoor activities you can enjoy with friends and family. Dress in layers. Stay warm, safe and dry when exercising in cold weather.
