In my opinion there is not a better way to enjoy winter than to hit the ski slopes. It gets you out of the house and into fresh air, but it also benefits the body in many ways. According to an article we wrote, a 150 pound woman will burn 432 calories after downhill skiing for one hour. The sport also has strength, flexibility and cardiovascular benefits.
Michigan has 51 ski areas across the state. Earlier this winter I braved the polar vortex and went downhill skiing at Boyne Highlands in Harbor Springs. I decided to wear our GoPro video camera to capture the fun and beauty of going downhill skiing in Michigan. I had so much fun I am going back this month!
