which means you have no valid suggestions. Everything involves renting a car, bringing a bunch of expensive gadgets and driving 2 hours out of the city and spending $200 on a hotel. Sorry, that's not what I call winter activity.

Dear lord, you people are no fun at all.

Yes, snow poker and skeleton luge are my favourite winter activities.

There are weather hazards everywhere.
Pick your poison.

Down here, for example, the roads/pavements are just as slippery after downpours (which are a daily occurrence 6 months out of the year) as I recall them in Montreal after snow.
You can break your neck from falling? Well, here you run the constant risk of being struck by lightning... Or having your arm ripped by gators... both of which occur multiple times per year.

Go west into the prairies and you'll be greeted by tornadoes, and farther west, earthquakes, droughts, massive forest fires...

I wasnt claiming i ski, i also dont view my country as a fail because one of its seasons is winter..My daily routine is rather similar whether winter or summer ,You are the one claiming nothing can be done in winter,so do nothing.

I'm not saying I do it, or anyone I know personally does, but I can tell you in the winter, if there is snow, I would bet nearly every park and trail is covered in cross country ski tracks in my city. The only time I don't see them is during active, extreme weather. People ride snowmobiles up and down my road, or take them out to the country every chance they get. My buddy is only off his sled if he's working or sleeping. Otherwise, he's out on the snowmobile.

People do do stuff, botti. Some people don't find getting suited up a chore, some do.

Which city?
I exaggerated a little, yes, but I'm not speaking specifically of rain -- rather, tropical downpours we get down here, which are extremely hazardous to walk and drive in.
