|Ben & Brody: Kings of the Ice Throne|
Mother Nature decided to take the “Think Snow” idea very seriously as the fluffy whiteness continues to blanket the area. Much colder than normal temperatures have been upon our area as of late; not just us but extending to the whole East coast and Midwest. All we can suggest is to bundle up and stay warm! As we get closer to the month of February, we have a lot of activities to look forward to! The weekend of President’s Day generally gives the population an extra day off, so that is always a reason to get away from the hustle and bustle but that particular weekend is also the 7th Annual Winterfest celebration held in downtown Oakland. If you are a fan of the quaint and charming small town flair then this event is perfect for you. Expert Ice Sculptor, Bill Sandusky, will once again be there tackling the large blocks of ice and turning them into beautiful sculptures. Throughout the town, these ice sculptures will be on display. There will also be vendors, games, live entertainment and various crafters around to keep you entertained. Stop by, grab a cup of hot chocolate, play ice bowling, pose with the sculptures and basically embrace the graciousness that is Oakland.
Wisp has been reporting that skiing conditions have been great lately with all of the fresh powder. Not a skier or a fan of snowboarding? There are so many other choices of activities to do! I personally, am a fan of snow tubing. It’s essentially sled riding except instead of trekking back up the hill yourself, you get pulled up by your tube. A win-win in my opinion! Embrace your inner Yamaguchi and try out the ice skating rink. Creating the perfect winter wonderland ambience, the rink is entwined in twinkly lights and complete with a large outdoor fire pit. Still unsure? There snowmobiling, snow shoe tours, cross country skiing, the list is long and guaranteed to offer something for everyone in your group. Beat the winter blahs with an invigorating and adventurous mountain escape to Deep Creek Lake.
