For Elsa Week, the activities are cold…chilly…icy…frosty…well, Frozen, if you will. And if you’re currently living in an icy tundra, activities like these might be easier to come by: skiing, sledding, snow tubing, snow ball fights, ice skating, making snow angels. If said tundra is available to you, take full advantage! It’s what Queen Elsa would do.
Me? I live in the tropical land of Florida…Central Florida. Where snow is scarce, especially in July…for that matter, it’s scarce in winter as well. So icy sports and activities are few and far between. But I do have a few options to work with for Elsa Week and maybe you will too.
When I want all the excitement of living in a cold, wintry place without actually having to live in one, I head to the RDV Sport’s Complex for their open skate. The hours are pretty particular and not always available, but they play fun music and you can burn a lot of calories with a couple hours of skating a week.
If ice skating is not an option, try roller skating. Same amount of calories will be burned, but it’s much warmer in a roller rink. Bonus: that sweet smell of sweaty teenagers (if teenagers still go roller skating. Do they? Who has the time to know!)
Winter Ski Experience
This one is random! Around the corner from my office is a virtual skiing experience. There’s a big screen and ski simulators that give you all the muscle work of skiing without the snow and the falling off your skis in the snow and the breaking your arm cause you fell off your skis in the snow! I don’t know how popular these are across the country, but if you’re in Central Florida, give it a try!
And let me know which Elsa Week activities are getting your heart rate up!
