Things To Do This Winter Outside Of Skiing And Snowboarding

Many come to Utah for skiing and snowboarding, but 'The Greatest Snow on Earth' can provide residents and visitors with so much more! Check out all these activities that have nothing to do with skiing or snowboarding.

Ice Skating
Looking for a winter activity the whole family can enjoy? Visit any of Utah's many ice skating rinks for a fun activity for any skill level. From the warmer indoor rinks to watching the snow fall as you skate outside, ice skating is a quintessential winter time activity. Click here for more information on some of Utah's most popular ice skating rinks.

Snowshoeing
Love hiking and/or backpacking in the summer and looking to get out in nature during the winter? Strap on a pair of snowshoes and hit the trails! Snowshoes provide a fun and easy way to get out into nature and off the beaten path. Participants can rent snowshoes for as low at $20 a day from local sporting outlets and many outfitters offer guided tours. For more information on snowshoeing in Utah, click here.

Tubing And Sledding
Looking for a winter thrill? Try tubing and sledding! Whether you want to visit any number of supermarkets or outdoor retailers and buy your own tube or sled, or you'd rather rent a tube and slide down a man made course (usually they even transport you back up to the top of the hill!), tubing and sledding is fun for the whole family. Check out these locations for tubing parks and some of the best sledding around the Wasatch Front and Back!

Snowmobiling
Ready to go full throttle and race your friends through the powder? Jump and a snowmobile for the jolt of adrenaline you've been looking for. Whether you want to pave your own trail in the backcountry or take a leisurely ride through nature, Utah has some of the best snowmobiling in the country. Click here for more information.

Revisit The Olympics
What would it be like to be an Olympic athlete? With the Utah Olympic Park, you can find out! Take a ride down the bobsled track, watch ski jumping and areal practice, wander the Alf Engen Ski Museum, experience the virtual reality ride, and so much more! 

The Top 4 Design Trends For 2019

An important benefit of homeownership is that you can design and decorate your home to your tastes, but sometimes you need a few ideas to get started. Should you paint or wallpaper? Should you stay safe with neutrals or go wild with color? The answers may lie in these top trends for 2019.

Color Over Neutrals
This is the year to embrace color – reds, blues, greens, and yellows look terrific against a backdrop of black and white. Meanwhile, grays as neutrals have had their day.

Patterns
The global look of Ikat, Morrocan Trellis, and Shibori is giving way to large classical florals with a modern edge, including bohemian abstracts. Consider the lush wallpaper and fabric patterns of Timorous Beasties.

Style-Mixing
Mid-century modern and minimalistic decor have been hugely popular over the last few years, but now the styles are looking dated. One reason why is that to be most effective, they’re rarely mixed with other styles making a home look more like a museum. Feel free to mix furniture and accessories of compatible eras.  

Comfort
While metal, acrylics, and wood furniture look great, don’t be afraid to soften the edges. You’ll see sumptuous fabrics overlaying stuffed chairs and sofas.  Make your bedding inviting with plush duvets filled with lightweight down.

Other trends include one-of-a-kind artisan goods such as bronze sculpture, oil, acrylic, and mixed media paintings; lighter than darker wood floors, and accents of brass, pewter, and chrome. 

Whatever you choose, it’s your home, so enjoy!
