We just love a good snow day-- where the temperature hovers right around freezing, the sun is shining bright, and the snow looks like sparkling glitter in the light. Ahhh. . . magical.
Try these fun activities around town on those upcoming magical snow days!
Pittsburgh has some really great outdoor ice rinks in the city and in the surrounding parks.
For the quintessential holiday skating experience, you must check out the PPG Ice Rink near Market Square's Holiday Market. It is a magical experience being next to all the glass buildings that resemble a crystal palace.
Skiing and Snow Tubing
For the more adventurous souls, you can ski and snowboard really close to town.
Boyce Park has a beginner level ski slope with rentals available. Great for kids that are learning how to ski or snowboard. There is also tubing at the park.
There are an abundance of parks in and around Pittsburgh to enjoy a snowshoe adventure. During the winter months, I have seen people snowshoeing on the South Park Golf Course.
Venture Outdoors has a great list of some western PA state parks that are great for exploring by snowshoe.
Whatever snowy outdoor activity you decide to do this season, we hope you have blast!
