The west coast of the province is considered a great place to enjoy outdoor pursuits. Winter arrived early this year so those with a love for snow have been all smiles, while those who don’t like the cold, blustery weather count down the days to summer. The Star chatted with a bunch of students at Corner Brook High this week to see how they deal with the long winter.
Question: What have you been doing to keep physically active this winter?
Breanna McEachren, Corner Brook
I like walking in Margaret Bowater Park and snowboarding at Marble Mountain.
Andrew Flood, Corner Brook
I spend a lot of time snowboarding at Marble. That’s about it really. I’m not really into winter because I can’t play baseball and that’s all I usually do.
Cole Porter, Mount Moriah
I’m playing baseball at the winter sessions at the annex so I can get better at baseball. I help out with the baseball, too. I like to snowmobile a lot and go downhill skiing at Marble.
Tristan George, Corner Brook
I play hockey with the Corner Brook Titans and I do some training at school like pushups, running and stuff like that. I also like winter because I can go out on snowmobile when I’m not playing hockey.
Cassidy Taylor, Corner Brook
I dance on an average of 10-12 hours per week. I do tap, jazz, ballet and modern. It’s a good way to relieve stress and express emotion.
Bria Morgan, Corner Brook
I snowshoe up at the golf course and on the back trails. I do ballet at Dance Studio West and I go downhill skiing at Marble, too. I hate winter because of the cold, but I like the activities that we can do in the snow.
