Top 5 Ways To Avoid Snow Madness


You can only huddle by the radiator for so long. Here are some ways to get out of the house once the polar vortex-level cabin fever sets in.

1. Michigan Ice Fest
Towers of frozen waterfalls are yours for the climbing on the shores of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula this weekend. Experienced ice climbers and first timers alike will be flocking to Munising for their annual Ice Fest. Daily events are offered and you can purchase equipment right on site. 400 Cedar St., Munising, MI, (906) 387-4067,

2. Bikram Yoga
One of the only ways you’ll be able to feel temperatures up to 105 degrees this week (without buying a plane ticket) will be in one of Cincinnati’s yoga studios. Bikram yoga, also known as hot yoga, is a 90-minute sequence in a room so hot you’ll be dreaming of snowstorms. 4794 Red Bank Expy., Madisonville, (513) 272-3014,

3. Sky Zone
There’s no better place to spend pent-up energy than in a room with floors made of trampolines. All you need is a signed waver and your child-like enthusiasm. Just remember, as always, no double bouncing. 11745 Commons Dr., Springdale, (513) 671-1333,

4. Rock Quest Rock Climbing
This indoor rock climbing experience will be infinitely more exciting than any arm workouts you had planned at the gym. 3475 East Kemper Rd., Sharonville, (513) 733-0123

5. US Bank Ice Rink
The city lights provide a perfect backdrop to a romantic pre-Valentine’s Day ice-skating date on Fountain Square. 520 Vine St., Downtown, (513) 381-0782,
