It's time for you and your family to get outside and enjoy some old fashion winter fun right here in Greater Lansing.

Even though at this point and time snow comes and goes, the winter chill is here to stay for quite some time. And we all know sooner or later that more snow will be coming our way.

Instead of staying inside, it's time to get your family outdoors to enjoy sledding, tubing, cross country skiing, or snow boarding. (Lansing State Journal)
