Cold? Snap out of it!

Do you complain about the cold, about winter in general? Then perhaps you don't know how to enjoy this fantastic winter weather. Dress for success, first and foremost, but once you are layered in your thermals, hitting the trails is a year round activity!

I have a supply of walking aids, including YakTrax or trekking poles, but I have lately been trading my boots for cross country skis. We've also hiked over to the new outdoor skating rink at the Hamilton harbour (by Williams Coffee Pub), slipped on the blades and joined others slicing across the ice!

So temper your complaints with a dose of self-reflection: are you making use of the special environment of cold, ice and snow?

This is after all a Northern nation.
Dress for it!
