Snow Trails

As Ohio temperatures begin to dip, wood piles are stocked for comfy lodge evenings by a roaring fire with friends and family visiting for the holidays. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to have fun!

Once the snowflakes fly, the sleds and toboggans come out! Cleveland Metroparks runs two 700-foot refrigerated toboggan chutes that don’t require any snow at all. Five ski resorts around the state offer downhill skiing and tubing while many State Parks and metroparks have areas reserved for cross-countryskiing. Along Lake Erie, when the deep freeze sets in, fisherman can’t wait to get out and drop a linefrom an ice fishing chanty.

Indoors, performing arts and new exhibits once again take center stage. Throughout the state, theaters, art museums and more welcome visitors with stunning shows, concerts and thought-provoking art exhibits.

The majestic white snow on the ground and nip in the air is too inviting to hibernate in front of the television or computer in Ohio. With all of the fun winter activities and events across the state, there is no time to waste inside. Whether you’re after a tranquil snowshoe hike through the forest or you seek the adrenaline rush of speeding down an ice chute, it can all be found in Ohio. So grab those gloves, hats, coats and boots and revel in the “coolest” season of the year!
