Posted on: 11 October 2017

If you are an outdoor sports enthusiast but you have kept your interests and experiences in the warm weather temperatures, or with boating and riding dirt bikes or RV's, it's time to expand your horizons. If you are looking to get into some extreme winter sports but you aren't sure what is the best for people who haven't done a lot in the snow, or where is a good place to start, there are a lot of ideas you want to look int. Here are some great outdoor sports you can try that should be thrilling and fun at the same time:


If you like to ride recreational vehicles but you have never been on a snowmobile, you are missing out. You can rent different sized options and hit the trails as long as you have the proper attire, and your past experience handling recreational vehicles will help you handle the machine.

 Talk with the snowmobile rental facility in advance about getting a machine for the day, where to go, and what the cost will be. You can talk with them about the trails in the area and the length of time it takes to ride them, to determine if you want to rent for a full day or half.

Bob Sledding

If you like roller coasters and other thrill rides, and you love to go fast, try bobsledding. There are some outdoor facilities that have bobsledding tracks, where you can glide down the ice just like the Olympic athletes. There will be safety courses and requirements that the facility may want you to go through first, and you'll want to wear a helmet and other safety features if it's recommended.

Air Drop Skiing

You can get taken up mountain or ski hill by a helicopter, and then they drop you down so you can ski down expert areas and from the highest tops. This is something that only experienced skiers will want to do, and you'll have to be in an area with tall hills or mountains to scale.

If you are always out doing some wild, adventurous and fun sports while the weather permits, it's time to explore the options that are available when the snow starts to fall. It's important to make sure that you have all the proper winter weather clothing and gear to stay warm when the temperatures are low and when you could get wet, and that you also have any safety gear that is recommended for the different activities you want to try. There are a lot of great outdoor winter sports, these are just a few that are daring and fun.
