The axiom, if you can’t beat’em join’em applies here. If you live in Boston you will inevitably have to make peace with the fact that winter is here to stay. Take advantage of the many activities available to you. The city has many public ice skating rinks and cross-country / down hill skiing is available outside of Boston.
Get tickets and check out Stowe, Vermont’s Winter Rendez-Vous, January 20-24. If skiing isn’t your thing, head up to the mountains and skip the slopes. You can still partake in all the apres-ski activities such as hot tubbing and cocktailing.
