Sparkling holiday lights adorn quiet village streets. A team of horses pulls the sleigh atop a field blanketed in freshly fallen snow. With its startling beauty and promise of pure playfulness, winter entices us to venture out with skis, sleds, snowboards, sleighs, and snowshoes. Winter festivals, community ski races, resort activities, and indoor entertainment venues of all kinds provide plenty of excitement and warmth during the snowiest months. In the winter the average temperature is a brisk 32 degrees.
