The best way to enjoy a Minnesota winter is find an activity you enjoy. Speedskating is a great option for people of all ages from 4 to 84+. There are many options which can get you moving including inside at various ice arenas in the metro area, the Olympic oval in Roseville, and on years with good ice, you can skate on some of the local lakes.
This sport is for people of all abilities and can be just a recreational activity to be active and get some fresh air or for the driven competitor there are options to train with highly competitive skaters who skate and the national and world level.
Do not let another winter pass you by without giving the fastest sport on ice a try.
