Wintery Mix

Editor's note: Wire reports contributed to parts of this story.

For a long time, this winter wasn't really acting like a winter. Balmy temperatures, not-so-white Christmas, open water just about everywhere. Well, now that it's mid-January things are starting to normalize. We've had a couple of decent-sized weather events and soon those who enjoy being out in the cold will be able to do so.

If you're one of those people, you probably know a fair thing about what the state has to offer in terms of outdoor winter activities. But if you're new, or made a resolution to get out and play in the snow, here's a few things you can try.

Caveat: Yes, we've had some snow and colder temperatures, but that doesn't mean waterways have frozen solid in that amount of time, or that all the snowmobile trails are open. If you aren't sure, check with your local clubs or state organization about your trip. It spoils everyone's fun if your Skidoo falls through the ice or bottoms out on a log. Be careful and have fun.
