Ballet is hard, and anyone who says otherwise has never tried to go en pointe through the entire Nutcracker Suite. Adding in poles, skis, and thermal gear creates a nearly impossible art form that’s part dance, part skiing, part acrobatics.
Instead of navigating the flow and eddies of a whitewater river, you can use gravity and the paths of the snow to engage in this take on sledding.
It’s time to attach yourself to a horse, a motorcycle, a set of dogs, or anything else that moves to find the unbridled fun (read: stark terror) of being drug along like a water skier over the unforgiving ground.
The Japanese competition of snowball fighting, Yukigassen, is a brutal game of dodgeball ramped up to be more than a little dangerous.
Like a soapbox derby using shopping carts pulled and pushed by people, you can start a whole league in your neighborhood with a few folks, a decked-out cart, and great costumes.
Shovel racing puts naught but a chunk of steel between you and the ground, along with a control stick jammed right into your family jewels.
So climb into a steel dish and hop down the hill without even the comfort of a handle to guide you, and you’ll soon be riding an adrenaline high right into winter Nirvana.
