Skiing is one of the most popular outdoor activities during the winter. Its popularity is well deserved, too—renting some gear and hitting the slopes makes for the perfect day activity, weekend getaway, and even a longer vacation such as a week-long stay at a ski resort. What’s more, skiing is an activity that every member of the family can enjoy. While there definitely are challenging slopes that only expert skiers are recommended to explore, skiing really is as difficult or easy as you want it to be. If you have small children, you can stick to the smaller hills until they feel more comfortable. If you will be skiing with elderly people, pregnant women, or people with bad joints, cross-country skiing is a perfect alternative that will provide everybody with a great time and a great workout.
