Snowshoeing and Cross Country Skiing Near Philadelphia
Philadelphia is second to none for winter fun! When many people think snow sports, they think downhill skiing. But for those of us who are gravity-challenged or prefer an outdoor snow experience that also allows for great family-togetherness and chatting, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing are terrific ideas. Some parks and nature centers offer beginner day trips and have equipment you can rent, which is ideal. Once you've gotten the hang of it, you can have fun in local parks whenever conditioners are good, making this a thrifty activity. We're fortunate to have some great places nearby so check out the list below, and get going!
