Careening down a snowy hill with no way to stop or steer brings a new meaning to "the dead of winter." Whether you are a veteran tuber or a newbie, snow tubing can give even the biggest weather complainer a reason to smile.

What's snowkiting? It's just like kiteboarding, but more dangerous because it's on snow! For all the adrenaline junkies in New York, this is an experience to take full advantage of on frozen lakes or snowy fields.
