Surviving a north country winter doesn’t have to be an uphill battle in the blinding snow. Here are a few easy — and affordable — ways to add some fun to our shortened days in Northern New York without losing your mind.

10.) Take a group class. Being forced inside by bone-chilling temperatures and snow may is the perfect opportunity to add a little variety to your exercise regimen. Local branches of the YMCA offer a variety of group fitness classes, including yoga, pilates and Zumba. YMCA memberships are less than $35 a month for adults, and with different classes being held daily, it would be tough to get bored. Local branches of the Y include the Downtown YMCA, 119 Washington St., Watertown, Fairgrounds YMCA, 585 Rand Drive, Watertown, and the Carthage YMCA, 250 State St. Visit www.watertownymca.org for information and membership rates.
