Snowy Dates

by Kiku Reidhead

Snowy Dates
While living in Utah, you have got to take full advantage of the snow. It's true that snow can be a pain, but only if you're walking or driving in it; if you're playing in it, snow can be a lot of fun!

Dates in the snow can be expensive, if you take a date skiing or snowboarding, that is. If you improvise and take a date sledding however, you can have fun without impacting your wallet.

A popular place to sled if you have your own gear is Bicentennial Rotary Park in south Provo. Take a thermos of hot chocolate or apple cider to warm up in between runs.

If you want to sled on a sledding hill, travel up Provo Canyon to Midway snow tube at Wasatch Mountain State Park. The park is complete with 1,200-foot sliding lanes and a tow-rope lift service. Tubing on a professionally-made hill complete with a tow rope comes at the price of $20 per person.

If you'd rather do something low key, have a snowman building contest and provide the accessories (buttons, noses, eyes, hats, etc.). Or just drop in the snow and make snow angels.

Needles to say, with the white stuff on the ground, if you use your creativity, winter can be fun in Provo! So, don't be afraid to get out and play in it!
