The “S’s” of Winter:  Clear skies, skates, sleds, skis and snow-shoes. 

Clear Skies:  Ay-yuh!  The snow is here, the sky is clear and the air is crisp.

Skates:  Lace up your skates and head over to the Waterhouse Center.  An open sided ice rink with skating until 9 pm 7 days a week.  Heat up your skate time on March 5th during the annual Chili cook off!  Click here for details.

Sleds:  Get your romance on and take a sleigh ride with “Rockin’ Horse Stables” or get the giggles going whilst sledding at the Consolidated School and the Sea Road Sledding Hill.

Skis (cross country) & Snow Shoes:  600 acres to explore at Harris Farm.  They rent all equipment and offer hot chocolate and other refreshments in their cozy barn – the warm fire is free.  Take an adventure, with your own equipment, at the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge or Laudholm Farm.  Join Laudholm Farm on February 23rd for their Winter Wildlife Day & Snow Day.  Click here for details.
