When many Michiganders think of the winter, they think of clearing the snow off their car in the early morning, snow days, and getting winter tires- usually, the dread of the cold weather makes everyone think about taking a trip down south and fantasizing about Disney World. But for some Michiganders, it means something exciting: winter sports!
MICHIGAN: A WINTER WONDERLAND
While some Michigan residents enjoy going to popular resorts, like Crystal Mountains Ski Resort, to relax with their family or friends, others love hitting their local slopes after a heavy snowfall. Many residents have lived in this State their entire life and never even touched the slopes because they don’t know how to ski, snowboard, or play fun games like ice hockey- and think, “Well, it’s too late for me to learn.” But it isn’t!
LEARN A NEW SKILL
While it may feel overwhelming with 15 winter sports to choose from, people of all ages can learn for the first time this winter. There are instructors at most ski and snowboarding areas who teach people of all ages, not just kids. If you feel intimidated by being alone with instructors, many offer group training sessions with adults just like you trying to learn a new skill. In these unprecedented times during a Pandemic, learning a new skill gives us all a little something to do other than watch Netflix inside this winter season. If your only winter activity is sledding, it’s a great time to learn!
A PAWN SHOP SAVES YOU MONEY
If you are unfamiliar with winter sports and don’t know where to start with buying ski or snowboarding equipment that is hundreds, or even thousands of dollars, a pawn shop is a great place to start. With snowboards starting at upwards of $600 and skis around $300, a representative can show you more financially-friendly options and walk you through the process of where to start with getting the gear you need for the sport in which you may be interested.
