Make a snowball

Is it snowing? Good. Now, go outside and make a snowball. Put the snowball in a safe place in the freezer and wait until June 21, the first day of summer. That’s the day that your snowball gets you pay-what-you-want admission to Carnegie Science Center, plus a chance to launch it into the by-then-unfrozen Ohio River. www.carnegiesciencecenter.org

The cold weather can be invigorating, and look, you need snow to partake in fun winter activities like cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Not sure how to do it, or where to begin? Let the folks at Venture Outdoors get you started with fun classes. Dress warmly! www.ventureoutdoors.org

Don’t sleep on Allegheny County’s parks! They’re busy in the winter: You can ski, snowboard and tube at Boyce Park, ice-skate at North and South parks; golf (yes!) at North and South parks; or just stroll around admiring the winter landscape. www.alleghenycounty.us
