Winter is my favorite time of the year. Not only is it nice and cold, but there’s so much stuff to do, such as skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and snowball fights. My favorite of these activities is snowboarding. Snowboarding is much more fun when you go with your friends. Me and my friends go with the school to many mountains such as Montage Mountain, Camelback Mountain, Greek Peak Mountain, Jay Peak Mountain and Windham Mountain. My favorite mountain is Greek Peak Mountain so far, but March 2nd through March 4th will be my first trip to Jay Peak and I’m guessing it will be really good. My cousin and a few people who went on the trip last year all told me that all of the out-of-state mountains are really fun. We also get a suite to stay at in a nice hotel. I’ve never tried skiing, but some of my friends who do ski try to convince me to ski with them. Snowmobiling is another fun winter activity. It feels a lot like four wheeling except for a few differences. You can go very fast with a snowmobile, especially in ice. If you’re more on the dangerous side, you can try taking a snowmobile across a pond that isn’t frozen, but you have to make sure you get a lot of speed. If skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling doesn’t interest you then you can always just build forts with your friends and have a snowball fight. You can make these as fun as you want. Some people choose to build huge forts and little features for the snowball fight, while other people just choose to throw a snowball at one of their friends. If none of these activities interest you, I’m sure you can find a way to have fun in the winter. One of my favorite things about winter is that you can pile yourself with a lot of blankets at night without being very hot. You can usually only use one blanket in the summer without getting hot. These are a few reasons why winter is my favorite time of the year.
