Hibernate for the winter? You wouldn’t dream of it! When the white stuff starts to fall, that’s your cue to get outside and play. These sites will help you make the most of your winter wonderland.

SnoCountry.com
Although ski-condition reports on ski areas around the world are the main focus on Snocountry.com, the site has much more to offer, including health and safety tips and a ski-vacation search engine powered by Priceline. Our pick for the handiest feature? The counter on the top of the homepage that keeps track of resorts with fresh powder.
snocountry.com
   
TrailSource.com
If you’re the type who’d rather bypass the lines at the ski lift for the solitary peace of a cross-country trail, Trail Source’s database can help you find one. Search by your state or, if you’re looking to expand your horizons, browse the site’s lists of new and popular trails. (Caveat: Full access to the site’s features—including printable maps—requires a subscription.)

SledRiding.com
Sledding has to be the most egalitarian winter sport there is—the learning curve is virtually nonexistent (gravity does all the work), and it’s just as much fun when you’re 55 as it was when you were 5. Check out this site’s reader recommendations for the best sledding hills in the U.S. and Canada, then grab the family and go.
sledriding.com
   
RinkTime.com
While RinkTime.com’s directory won’t point you in the direction of that idyllic little country pond, it will guide you to public outdoor ice rinks in your area. Search by state or Canadian province to find listings, which include a description of what’s offered and a map of the rink’s location.
