Amid all the flight delays and slushy streets, we may sometimes forget that winter in New York is supposed to be awesome. The parks look beautiful under a blanket of snow, and think about it: When does the air ever feel cleaner than on a crisp January day? The Parks Department reminds us why we should love the colder months with its annual winter sports festival in Central Park. Attendees can learn or take part in snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding on the manufactured white stuff. (Or they can just sip hot chocolate and enjoy the outdoors.) If you’ve got a pooch, bring it along: The fest has a Super Bowl–themed doggie section.
