It may be 20 degrees, but the excitement of the moment makes you not feel the temperature. Standing at the top of the slope, you catch your breath as you start to glide down the mountain. With the wind in your ears and nothing but glistening snow at your feet, It’s all downhill from here.

Just because it’s wintertime, doesn’t mean you have to lose the adrenaline that often times comes with summer activities. Feeling the rush as you cut your way down the mountain or twirl on the ice can be just as great a feeling as hanging upside down on a roller coaster or flying across the water on a jet ski.

The surrounding areas of Cabrini offer a variety of snow-filled fun from Philadelphia to the Poconos.

Only minutes away, Penn’s Landing Blue Cross River Rink is perfect for people who enjoy ice-skating under the night sky. Located in Old City, Philadelphia, the rink overlooks the Delaware River and the twinkling city skyline. The cost is nine dollars for ice skate rentals and admission.

Junior Erin Nelson said, “I liked the atmosphere of the open rink, and in trying not to fall and freeze, I stayed next to the wall the entire time.”

For those of you who enjoy the more thrilling snow events, you can find them at Jack Frost and Big Boulder in the Poconos. The Poconos Resort is only about an hour and a half away. It offers it’s college-aged visitors a season of packaged deals where you can partake in snow blading, skiing and snowboarding for the price of $150. For an additional $20, you can snow tube.

“Skiing was a good experience in order to get away and take a break with friends,” sophomore Maggie Cassidy said.

If you want a little romance with that special someone, knowing that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, a sleigh ride will coax you into a cozy scenario. Lying in the heart of East Stroudsburg, the Pocono Country Carriages, Inc. sleigh rides cost $90 a couple for an hour that will create memories for a lifetime.

To savor the last days of winter, take advantage of these seasonal pastimes.
