Learn to ski/snowboard

This Jan. 12 and 13, Stevens Pass hosts Grom Playground, where instructors provide gear and offer free 30-minute lessons to kids ages 3-7 on snow-covered, friendly hills in Leavenworth. On-site registration opens at 10 a.m. 

 

Become a curler

What’s so hard (or exciting) about pushing a granite rock on ice? Visit North Seattle’s Granite Curling Club for its open house on Feb. 16 to find out! $25/adults, $10/children.

 

Take to the ice

You have your choice of ice-skating rinks in the area. Don’t forget to layer and wear gloves! $8/adults, $2-$6/child. 

 

Sled it out

Channel your favorite skeleton or bobsled athletes while slip-sliding away at the popular Hyak Sno-Park, located off I-90 at Exit 54. Take your own sled/snow tube. For permit requirements and other popular sledding spots, read this.

 

Go to a hockey game

Hockey is alive and well in the Emerald City; the Seattle Thunderbirds are a major junior hockey team that plays at Kent’s ShoWare Center. Regular season ends in mid-March. $18+.
