Winter is possibly my favourite time of the year and the opportunity to have a snow day is one our entire family grabs with both hands. Of course, with four kids at home there are always different activity requests but if you are somewhere like Lake Placid this is no problem at all – the only problem there is trying to fit many activities into just one day!
Between the six of us our perfect snow day would be:
- I’d start the day Shopping on Lake Placid’s eclectic Main Street while dad took the kids for a few runs down the toboggan chute
- Then it would be time for us to Eat , although I’m not sure where yet – there just seem to be so many places to choose from!
- Lunch would be followed by a family Snowshoe hike in a winter wonderland and maybe a visit to the Wild Center
- At this point we’d stop to Eat! again and round the day off with
- A guided snowshoe, ski or fat bike excursion at night
Hopefully all of that activity would be enough to get the kids worn out and fast asleep while we relax by a log fire!
Sounds pretty much like the perfect snow day to me – how about you? What would be your perfect snow day?
