Winter, while packed with holiday’s, typically is a boring time of year. Poor weather conditions typically leave you with limited options for winter fun. Don’t fret! You can still have fun this winter, and with the help of WeatherBug, your favorite free weather app for Android, you’ll know the best times to go out.

Ice Skating

Ice skating is one of the main hallmarks of winter fun. Before you head out, check your local weather app to get a good idea on the weather. If it is going to me warmer, the ice will be melting slightly, so waterproof pants are a must.


Skiing is a winter sport and activity that is something the entire family can enjoy, even if your kids are more interested in snowboarding. An entire day can be lost in the laughter and excitement of a day at the ski hill.


Sledding is now just for kids. The rush of adrenaline that comes from racing down a hill on a sled or innertube is something everyone will enjoy.

Build A Fort

Remember when you were a kid and always wanted to build a massive fort? Now that you’re older, you have all the skills and tools you’ll need to do so. Get the kids involved and turn it into a neighborhood snowball fight.

Host An Ice Party

Start by gathering wood for a large bonfire. Then decorate the backyard with winter themed decorations, or build them yourself, using compacted snow and water, you could even make your own outdoor ice bar!

Winter can be a lot of fun, especially if you know what to expect, thanks to your local weather app. Just grab a couple of friends and remember, it’s not so much what you do, but who you do it with, that makes winter activities so much fun!
