No Snow? No Problem! 3 Winter Sports That Don't Require Snow

There isn’t a day that goes by without a news station out there reporting on the “crazy weather” they are having.  Warm winters when it’s normally much colder is beginning to be a reality for many people across the globe. And while you may be expecting 5 feet of snow to practice your Winter sport, you may be sadly disappointed this year.  But don’t worry, people around the globe are coming up with creative ways to adapt sports that have traditionally been exclusively available to those with snow. So now everyone can enjoy them, even in the driest places like Las Vegas.  Take a look and let us know what you think!

1. Dryland Dogsledding


The biggest difference between dryland dogsledding and it’s wintery counterpart is the vessel that is being pulled. Instead of using the traditional sled, people are using wheeled carts, bicycles, or even scooters.  The pro to this option? If the ground is smooth, the rider can reach very higher speeds, making it a fun choice for anyone from small children to adrenaline seeking adults.

2. Mountainboarding


Mountainboarding is the hilltop snowboarding equivalent.  Add wheels to a board, strap your feet in, and ride down any hill or mountain of your choosing.  The great thing about this sport? It can be done in just about any terrain and if you strap a kite on, you can use the same board to do some kiteboarding.

3. Ice Blocking


Ice blocking is simple to do, generally safe, and very fun.  Simply go to your local grocery store and buy a few blocks of ice. Then find your favorite grassy hill, lay the ice block down with a towel on top and plop yourself on it. Then give yourself a big push and giggle as you slide all the way down the mountain.  See, who said you needed snow to slide down a hill?
