With the state covered in a nice layer of white powder, now is the perfect time to pack up the family and head out for a day outdoors!

There’s a ski park in every region of Wisconsin, so get out to the slopes on the last day (and night) of the year! If you’re not a skier or snowboarder, many places also offer snowshoeing and tubing as well. What a great way to get a head-start on your New Years Resolution, burning those extra calories and making unforgettable memories with the family. Don’t forget your camera!
