Living in a city that experiences snowfall can be a hassle for some people. All of your work comes to a stop when it starts to snow outside. Just like the difficult times in our life, we forget how to enjoy our life and sit lethargically. However, if we learn to be happy and have fun even when it snows or when the difficult time comes, we can surpass the situation happily. The winter season can be most fun. It comes with its many creative activities which can be held, both, indoor and outdoor.

As soon as the snow hits the road, pick up your gears for skiing and snowboarding. Skiing is an exciting activity that most of the people enjoy during winters. However, it is surprising how many people do not ski or snowboard. So, this winter season you don’t be one of them, pick up your snowboard and slay the snow! Even if you do not ski, you can still have fun. Just gather around with your friends and make a snowman. Hum the tune of ‘do you want to build a snowman?’ and believe it, no one is old enough when it comes to building a snowman. While you are at it, start a snow fight. Have a laugh or two when you get hit with snow too. Even sledging is an option. If you are living in Colorado, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and sledging is always there to entertain you! If you are not a local, then enjoy by planning a trip to the amazing city of Wyoming to enjoy these sports in a healthy spirit.
Don’t huddle up in your rooms in the winters. With so many activities to participate in and so much fun to have, how can you sit at your home? The North end of the Laramie Mountains is home to the beautiful and dynamic Casper Mountains. At the foot of the Casper Mountains, lie the magnificent city of Casper itself. About 18 km from the city is the entertaining site for all the locals and tourists, the Hogadon Ski Area. The area is very close to the city, about 20 minutes away. The place is truly a wonder and an amusing site for friends and family. It is a resort that even provides rental equipment for snowboarders and skiers. Visit the place and you’ll experience no trouble, no waiting lines whatsoever to slow you down in your journey. And after journey you can sit and relax at the cafeteria at Hogadon.
For those who went to visit the resort this year or are planning to do so, you will witness the 21st ‘Tune-up Day’. It was last held on 17 September this year. The ‘Tune-up Day’ was first held in 1995 by a volunteer, who was also the founder of the same. It was decided that this day would be used and celebrated to improve the skiing area and maintain it. Every year, the day is celebrated with exuberant enthusiasm with 70+ volunteers and business. It is an effort to beautify the place and preserve the Hogadon Ski Area. The organisation that arranges for the day also offers prizes to great enthusiasts. It is a very creative way to promote and clean up the resort and make a difference in the society.
Hogadon Ski Resort is situated 11 miles of Casper Mountain. The resort is a fun place for all its visitors. The journey begins right from the lifts which are two in number. These lifts do not cause you to stand in lines as they are quick in service. The Prospector Chairlift is a two-chair lift, which carries up to 1,000 skiers per hour. It is 2,200 feet long. The other lift is the Mine Shaft or the Magic Carpet Lift on beginner terrain. It is very fun to travel in these lifts and reach the Resort.The resort has 27+ trails which vary in difficulty levels. Almost 20% of these trails are for beginners, 40% are intermediate and the rest are of advanced level. The resort features a terrain park as well. There are 60 acres of groomed slopes to sledge or ski on. When the snowfall is not up to the mark, the resort can generate new snow on its own. The summit of the resort is 8,000 feet with a vertical rise of 600 feet.The resort also features several cross-country trails which are not far away from the resort. The trails are lit up at night for skiing. However, the resort does not offer any downhill skiing at night.
After all the training in the skiing lessons and the thrill of running down the slopes, you can rest and eat delicious food at the Ramkota Hotel. The hotel is close to other famous tourist spots like the Tate Geological Museum, The National Historic Trails Centre, Lake Alcova, and such destinations. It also lies close to the downtown shopping district from where you can buy souvenirs of the place and various gifts for yourselves.
