HAGUE — Cross country skiing is again available at Rogers Rock Campsite in Hague. The 6 kilometers of groomed trails are open daily. “There will be designated groomed trails all winter, weather permitting,” said Joe McCranels, volunteer coordinator. The trails, which include lights on the south loop for evening skiing until 11 p.m., are sponsored by town of Hague recreation department and the Warren County office of the state Department of Environmental Conservation. McCranels said the trails are maintained and groomed by the Hague Snowmobile Club. A registration box is provided by the DEC at the entrance to the campsite. “As a matter of record and for safety sake, all users are asked to register at each visit,” McCranels said. “A trail map and general information board are posted next to the registry box.” McCranels asked riders of snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles to please avoid the cross country ski trails in the interest of skier safety. Information on the cross country ski trails is available from the Hague town hall at 543-6161 or at 585-9890.

LaPann Memorial Road Race, Feb. 13 HAGUE — Area runners will once again honor a local legend when they lace ’em up for the Fred LaPann Memorial Road Race. The 5-mile race is held each year in conjunction with the annual Scholarship Weekend. This year ’s race will be Saturday, Feb. 13. The race will start and finish at the Hague fire house. The course is an out-and-back race on West Hague Road. Race registration is at 8:15 a.m. and the run begins at 9 a.m. Runners age 19 and younger can compete for free, while adult racers will pay a $7 registration fee. The race is named for LaPann, an accomplished Hague runner who died in 2001. “Fred LaPann was very encouraging to the young runners in our schools,” said Dave Rutkowski, the retired cross country and track coach at Ticonderoga High School and a member of the LaChute Road Runners Club. “Fred was instrumental in the establishment of the LaChute Road Runners, whose primary purpose is to promote running to the youth of our area,” he said. “He was a great role model, and was always willing to take kids to road races,” Rutkowski added. “He was very challenging to the rest of us by being very fast. We measured our success by how close we were to Fred LaPann at a race. On top of all of this he was humble about his ability. Fred was, and still is, ‘The Champ of Hague.’”

Volunteers help to improve Schroon Lake Ski Hill SCHROON LAKE — The Schroon Lake Ski Hill has been improved with the help of community volunteers. “When a community comes together good things happen,” said Roger Friedman, town trustee. “Such is definitely true for the Schroon Lake Ski Hill located at the Schroon Lake Municipal Golf Course. The partnership of local government, town personnel and local volunteers has made the ski hill a focal point for local winter activities.” Approximately six years ago the town of Schroon received grant money to install a single handle tow and a warm-up hut. “For the first few years of operation attendance at the Ski Hill was sporadic, but ever since a group of dedicated residents offered to volunteer in order to improve the facility, the activity at the ski hill has been impressive,” Friedman said. In 2009 the town purchased a surplus generator that powers the lift. The group of volunteers and town personnel helped clear the south side of the ski lift which has been designated as a sliding and tubing hill. Also for this winter lights have been installed for night skiing. The town youth commission has scheduled several events for the ski hill weather

Skiing at the Schroon Ski Hill is available Fridays 4 to 8 p.m., Saturdays and all school holidays and snow days 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. permitting. Skiing, open to the public, depending on snow conditions, will be available Fridays 4 to 8 p.m., Saturdays and all school holidays and snow days 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sledding and tubing are also available to the public.

Youth ski lessons for pre-school to grade 6 students will be available Feb. 14. For more information call Patty at the Schroon town hall at 532-7737. The cardboard box derby will be held Saturday, Feb. 27, at 11 a.m.

Many people put on the snowshoes and take a hike on the trails. This is a different type of experience only a few people will attempt in the Adirondacks. Cross country skiing in this area is like taking a walk on the clean snow of the mountains. Have you ever tried back country skiing? What fun it is, putting on the skis and breaking a fresh trail in the woods. For those who wish a flatter course, there is always the lake or golf course. Rental of

cross country skis and snowshoes is available. Ice fishing is a good time for the fisherman. Every year when the ice covers the lake, a whole new village develops on the lake.

Hickory Ski Center, renowned as a mecca for skiers who love the traditional setting, has reopened with a lot of new amenities. Whether it’s Hickory’s refurbished lodge, a new efficient ticket-sensing system, the new Poma chairlift or snowmaking capabilities, Hickory’s created a substantial buzz this year among skiers. It’s known as a family-friendly, relaxed place to ski as well as some thrilling tree-lined downhill runs for the adventurous.

Have fun, regardless of your budget CHESTERTOWN — When you get bored fiddling with Facebook and fed up with reality t.v. shows, it’s time to shake off the cabin fever and get out and go somewhere. Whether it’s the warmth of socializing at a small-town event or the adventure of experiencing nature in winter, there are endless opportunities for folks in the lower Adirondacks. Considering crimped budgets, we all can take heart that the area continues to offer an amazing variety of activities for the whole family that are available either at a minimal cost, or free. 1) Snow tubing and sledding offers traditional family fun. Nearly every small town has its own favorite sledding hill — just stop into a local shop and ask a friendly clerk where to go. Most town parks have sledding hills, and some have warming huts and other amenities to add to the enjoyment. 2) Ice skating not only can be exhilarating, but it provides a ton of fun for youth and important exercise for all. Most local towns have outdoor skating rinks, and maintain them for a smooth surface. Some are covered rinks. Those who like the old-fashioned experience can seek out a local pond or lake and enjoy the scenery while gliding over the slick surface.

71514

3) Ice fishing offers fun rewards. Area lakes and ponds are expected to have a strong, thick ice surface by mid-February, but use caution and check conditions with local guides and bait shops, who also offer angling tips as well as reviews of state regulations. Fish for perch, salmon, lake trout and northern pike. 4) Cross-country skiing is an idea way of exploring pristine wild country or short recreational trails, and Warren County is loaded with such opportunities. Eight maintained ski trail systems offer invigorating skiing free of charge. Try Dynamite Hill in Chestertown — which includes lighted trails, Lake George Recreation Center, or Pack Forest in Warrensburg. Rogers Rock Campground on Lake George offers some lighted pathways for night skiing in their delightful trail system that includes scenic views of Lake George. The Warren County Nordic Ski Trail System off Cronin’s Golf Course in Warrensburg offers gorgeous views of the pristine upper Hudson River, complete with ice formations and water flows. 5) Snowshoeing is delightful on many area hiking trails or on specific dedicated paths. What a great activity, particularly on a sunny, clear day, to get exercise and experience nature! Head out


Adirondack Fever 2010 - 13 to the Lake George Recreation area, Rogers Rock state campground, or the forest trails at Pack Demonstration Forest in Warrensburg, or the Warren County Nordic Ski network which can be accessed at Cronin’s Golf Course or the county Nature Trails parking lot off Hudson St. Extension in Warrensburg. 6) Museums, exhibits and galleries, 28 or more, are located throughout the county. It’s the perfect way to intrigue one’s aesthetic sense, plus spend some leisurely time just wandering, looking and learning. Try to experience several in one day, because the area abounds with them — and The Hyde Museum of Glens Falls, chock-full of masterpieces, is world-renowned. Nearby LARAC Lapham Gallery not only has art exhibits, but artwork and gifts, selected with a discerning eye, for sale at reasonable prices. 6) Winter festival fun is legendary in the lower Adirondacks. The ever-famous Lake George Winter Carnival is held every weekend in February, and the Hague Winter Weekend — featuring a footrace — is set for Feb. 13 and 14. The Lake George Winter Carnival is renowned for its polar plunge, games, motorized sports on ice, and now it includes dogsled rides and races plus a parasail plunge competition. The Hague Winter Weekend includes games for kids and frigid swimming. Both offer a bonfire, and Lake George is hosting fireworks. Either offers tons of family fun! 7) Plunge down Dynamite Hill Feb. 20 on a homemade creative sled in Chestertown’s Krazy Downhill Derby & Broomball Tournament at Dynamite Hill off Rte. 8. Enjoy sledding in the offbeat race, compete in a broomball tournament, or have fun as a spectator. For decades, families have loved this traditional event. Call 494-2722 or see: www.northwarren.com for details. For details and free brochures on many more indoor and outdoor activities and a host of free events that are happening in the Lake George Area in New York’s Adirondacks, contact the Warren County Tourism Dept. 800-365-1050 ext. 5100 or see www.VisitLakeGeorge.com

Sledding in local towns’ recreational parks throughout the lower Adirondacks is a family activity sure to provide exercise and lots of fun for children. Here, Lauren Roberts of Lake George enjoys a saucer ride. Photo by John Lustyik

Lake George Winter Carnival: Steeped in tradition, but forever new This year’s Carnival is fest’s 50th annual LAKE GEORGE — The year was 1961, and the Soviets rocketed the first human into space and began building the Berlin Wall — and U.S. President John Kennedy plotted to invade Cuba. Back home, a small group of citizens launched the Lake George Winter Carnival, a series of free, fun events to give residents and visitors a fun escape from winter ’s doldrums. Although the Berlin Wall was torn down nearly 30 years later, the Carnival has persisted. This year brings us the 50th annual Lake George Winter Carnival. From a modest start of a few minor activities, the Carnival’s series of weekend events grew to a popular regional attraction, the largest and longest-running event of its type in central New York. As the volunteer carnival organizers have come and gone, they’ve launched new attractions which have enhanced the Carnival and most recently, broadened its appeal. The Carnival’s motorcycle and sports car ice races on Lake George have persisted for decades, adding categories and new events to their competitions along the way. Both modes of racing evoke thrills, with vehicles careening around curves, inches away from each other, rooster-tails of iceshards billowing behind spinning tires.

This year, the Winter Carnival brings back ATV racing along with the AMA-sanctioned New York State Motorcycle Ice Racing Championship events, featured both Feb. 13 and 14, beginning at 11 a.m. off Million Dollar Beach. Saturday and Sunday Feb. 27 and 28 are the car ice races, featuring classic sports cars in various states of modification to the Super Modified racers — some even resemble moon rovers. Crowds of motor-sports enthusiasts enjoy not only the competition, but friendly chatting about the vehicles, their modifications and preparation for the races.

Family-oriented activities boosted In recent years, however, the Lake George Winter Carnival has rediscovered its roots — its emphasis on family fun with participatory activities, including games, contests, sled-dog rides, and a children’s petting zoo with pony rides and indoor craft sessions for children, to name a few. New this year is a hot-air balloon “walk-around” in which children can examine the craft close up and talk to a balloon pilot. The weekend of Feb. 20 and 21 concentrates on the non-motorized activities, for those who seek serenity rather than the excitement of careening, shrieking vehicles. Saturday Feb. 20, Carnival-goers will likely see the sky above the ice filled with colorful kites of all shapes and designs, as the American Kitefliers Association brings their enthusiasts to fly

Adirondack Fever 2010 - 17 their creations above Lake George’s ice. In past years, the spectacle has been stunning, and children and families enjoy the helpful instruction offered by the group’s members. Ever-popular have been the contests for the twenty-something set, whether it’s the fun-filled tavern competition (scheduled this year for Sunday Feb. 21), the action of flag football on ice (on Saturday Feb. 20) or the annual outhouse races held last week. Revived this year are the sanctioned sled dog weight-pull competitions, Saturday and Sunday Feb. 21 and 22. New this year is the Skydiving Swoop competition, surely to raise adrenaline levels in spectators and competitors. The traditional chili and wings cookoffs, tethered balloon rides, snowmobile rides, ATV Poker runs, ice-diving demonstrations, are also featured again this year. The prime spectator activity, the Polar Plunge, also is featured — at 3 p.m. all weekend days of the Carnival. In the 1970s and early 80s, the Polar Plunge featured the Coney Island Polar Bear Club, with their robust RussianAmerican members tossing chunks of ice around as well as swimming beside shivering local Carnival Princesses clad in swimming suits — as frigid spectators cringed. This annual rite has evolved to a local rite of folks of all ages participating in the frigid plunge, and its popularity has grown

Experience the woods in winter: Enjoy the frozen solitude BOLTON LANDING — Exploring the serene beauty of the wild country during winter is a truly awe-inspiring experience, and generations of visitors have attested that the Lake George region’s beauty is unsurpassed. Experiencing nature’s solitude and silence is a big factor in this renewing experience, and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are two prime ways to do so. There is a remarkable array of opportunities for such outdoor recreation in northern Warren and southern Essex counties, but Bolton offers several significant ones. A ski or snowshoe excursion up Cat or Thomas Mountains near Bolton offers some spectacular scenery that includes views of frozen Lake George and majestic, snow-covered slopes. The Cat and Thomas Mountains are part of an 1,800-acre preserve near Bolton Landing purchased in 2003 by the Lake George Land Conservancy.

Intermediate skiers will enjoy this trip, and the wider the skis you have, the better. This magnificent stretch of land is one of the largest ecologically significant landscapes on Lake George and features over seven miles of trails and unsurpassed mountain vistas. Just a five-minute drive from Bolton Landing, the trails to the summits of Cat and Thomas Mountains reward skiers with outstanding views of the surrounding mountains in all their snowy winter cloak. The trail up Thomas Mountain, offering the easier ski experience, follows a logging road as it winds up the mountain through varying forest types for about 1.5 miles and ends at a quaint cabin where people can enjoy views of surrounding mountains, draped in snow. The trail to Cat Mountain also follows a logging road, past a number of wetlands and beaver ponds, ultimately taking in a panoramic view of Lake George, in all its shimmering, frozen beauty.

From I-87 Northway Exit 24, head east on county Rte. 11 for about two miles and turn right onto Valley Woods Rd. The trail into the preserve is 1/10th of a mile on the right.

Family fun on snowshoes For those who seek an introduction to the back-country experience or have younger children in tow, consider a trip to nearby Up Yonda Educational Farm. Off state Rte 9N in Bolton just south of the intersection with county Rte. 11, Up Yonda offers a leisurely family snowshoeing experience. Winter hikes on Up Yonda’s 73 acres can take you to a hilltop where you have a spectacular view of Lake George in its wintry beauty. On Saturdays during February, Up Yonda offers guided snowshoe hikes, with a naturalist, on the facility’s extensive trail

Adirondack Fever 2010 - 21 the best opportunities, according to the many ice fishing enthusiasts that set up shanties scattered over the lake. We hear from the local tackle shops that they actually conduct more business in the winter months than other seasons. The tackle shop proprietors, by the way, are ready to offer helpful advice to get rookies of all ages involved in ice fishing. Such useful instructions make one’s outdoor experience truly enjoyable. These experts will be offering tips for those in the annual Lake George Ice Fishing Championship, set for 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday Feb. 20, offshore from Veteran’s Park. Prizes will be awarded, up to $300, for the biggest lake trout, salmon, perch and northern pike, with a special division for children. Also, all those signing up will be entered in a drawing for a free four-hour fishing charter for up to four people this summer. Entry fees benefit the Kiwanis Foundation. Interested in Learning How to Ice Fish? Those needing instruction on wintertime angling are encouraged to visit the free Ice Fishing Clinic from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. off Veterans Park in Lake George’s Sawmill Bay. At the clinic, members of the Lake George Fishing Alliance will be giving folks hands-on experience drilling a hole through the ice, jigging for panfish, and setting a tip-up to see what ice fishing is all about. Children under 16 don’t need a fishing license to come out and learn, but all folks are urged to dress warmly! To see the contest rules as well as New York State fishing laws, or to reap a discount for advance registration to the ice fishing contest, see: www.lakegeorgeicefishing.org or call 644-3831 for details.

Owens House hosts winter classes NORTH CREEK - The North Creek Depot Museum and Owens House Education Center & Gallery will soon begin an inaugural “North Country themed” Winter Workshop Series.

Workshops include: “Weave an Adirondack Pack Basket” taught by Frank Morehouse on Feb. 20 from 10 a.m - 4 p.m. The materials and registration fee is $80 or $70 for museum members and students. “Get Started in Model Railroading” with Bill Bibby on March 1 - 4 from 6 - 8 p.m. Participants will learn about scale, layout, materials, and wiring. The registration fee is $30 or $25 for members and students. Registration is due by Feb. 15. “Introduction to Photography in the Adirondacks” with Dave Braley will take place on April 5, 8, 12, & 15 at 7 p.m. The registration fee is $20 or $15 for members and students. Registration is due by March 22. All classes are held at the Owens House and participants can

register by calling 251-5842. Michelle San Antonio, director of the North Creek Depot Museum, anticipates the workshops will appeal to people of all ages. “I wanted to offer some workshops that haven't been offered in this area recently and to primarily make use of the beautiful space at the Owens House Education Center & Gallery,” she said. Aside from offering unique educational opportunities, the workshops are designed to create exposure for the Owens House and to garner interest in the Depot Museum's goals of offering more activities for the local community. The two buildings are operated by the same non-profit, The North Creek Railway Depot Preservation Association. “I would like the community to become more familiar with that relationship,” said San Antonio. “Even though the museum closes for the winter season, my goal as director is to offer programs at the Owens House throughout the year.”

Misty Mountain Bakery Cafe offers “Dinner and a Movie” INDIAN LAKE — Ingrid Jacobsen, owner of Misty Mountain Bakery Cafe, will offer dinner and a movie specials every Thursday night throughout the winter months. Dinner is served at 7 p.m. and the movie begins at 7:30 p.m. in the dining area of the cafe. Each month is themed and will feature meals associated with each movie theme. February is Black History Month and will include a mix of both old and new films exploring African American heritage. March is fantasy month and will be highlighted by a Lord of the Rings trilogy weekend on March 25. “I love movies and I enjoy to cook and bake, so these events seemed to make sense,” said Jacobsen. When she is not doing all of the cooking, she hires chefs with a special connection to her theme and the ability to cook foods that coincide. Jacobsen opened Misty Mountain in October of 2007 and is open year-round 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. The cafe is closed, however, Tuesday - Thursday until Memorial Day. She offers an assortment of baked goods as well as prides herself in vegan and gluten-free baking. “If people don’t know the items are vegan or gluten-free, they usually can’t tell the difference,” she said.

See the Adirondacks from snowshoes NEWCOMB — Snowshoeing is as easy as walking, yet many are intimidated by doing it in the Adirondacks. Educators at the Newcomb VIC will offer winter workshops exploring the history of snowshoes, the different varieties of snowshoes, and will then practice the fun and heart-healthy sport on the VIC trails along Rich Lake. Instructors from the Adirondack Mountain Club will visit the VIC beginning Feb. 13 to offer a Chilly Snowshoe Festival. Events are free of charge and run from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Snowshoes will be provided. Workshops are ideal for all ages. They will highlight scavenger hunts along VIC trails as well as many events for children. Aside from workshops, the Newcomb VIC features 3.6 miles of trails for independent skiing and snowshoeing. “The trails have already been very popular among snowshoers,” said Rynda McCray an Adirondack Park Agency environmental educator at the Newcomb VIC. “There’s plenty of snow for skiing as well, so wax em up and come on out.” The trail systems are available for public use from dawn until dusk seven days a week and are free of charge. The buildings at each VIC are open from 9 am - 5 pm Tues-

day-Saturday. For more information on the VIC or the

Fishing is great all year round! M

ost of us associate fishing with vacations, sunshine and relaxation. For the uninitiated it is the perfect summer pastime while you’re lazing about at the lake in the peaceful surroundings of the countryside. However, fish will rise to the bait any time of the year so this sport can be practiced in any season you like, on the water or on the ice. Welcome to the world of ice fishing! Like so many other winter sports, ice fishing is a pursuit which has been practiced for a very long time. Here in North America, the peoples of the First Nations fished on the ice a long time before the

arrival of the first Europeans. Of course, these days, ice fishing is no longer a means of survival but rather a sport; a sport practiced by thousands of enthusiasts. And so, every winter, as soon as the ice is thick enough, we see little huts popping up all over our lakes and rivers protecting those courageous fishermen from the cold winter winds. Equipped with fishing lines, bait and all their other paraphernalia, they install themselves comfortably, drill holes in the ice and then sit and wait… and hope that the fish will bite. Ice fishing And what sort of fish can we has thousands of fans. expect to catch when ice fishing? It goes without saying that the species can vary greatly from region to region. However, varieties such as perch, pike and walleye are generally quite common. But it doesn’t really matter what kind of fish will be on the menu that evening. An ice fishing expedition is above all a leisure activity as well as an enjoyable time with family or friends; a great day out in the fresh air.

Snap some winter shots S

eeing your camera can often stir fond memories of your summer holidays at the beach, or walk through the city… How unfortunate not to take advantage of the beautiful winter days to get out your camera and explore your neighborhood. In town or in the country, at every corner and at the foot of every tree, there is something beautiful just waiting to be photographed. Whether your camera is digital or filmbased, it is conceived to photograph with varying colors and brightness. Many people get discouraged with the results of their winter photography. If this is your experience, you should learn how to use your camera correctly for winter. A snowcovered field or landscape can sometimes result in pictures that are toned-down. Setting the shutter speed of your camera to + 1/2 will ensure truly white snow. If your subject (including people) is close to you, on a snowy background, activate your camera’s flash and the shadows on the face will be clearer. If you have a digital camera, you will quickly realize that cold temperatures consume a lot of energy. A very simple

Take full advantage of beautiful winter days to photograph your favorite subjects. Pictured above is Lillian Merfeld, Carter Nixon Sweeney and Bryan Merfeld heading out on a sliding adventure. solution is to carry your camera, along with some rechargeable batteries, inside your coat where they can be kept warm. If it is snowing, melting flakes on the lens will blur the photograph. Place your camera inside a resealable plastic bag that

you open only when you are ready to take a picture. When you return indoors, leave your camera in the bag, on the counter, for a good fifteen minutes in order to prevent condensation from forming on the instrument.

An igloo in your backyard S

ometimes winter can seem to last forever and we end up with the impression of doing the same activities year after year. However, it’s probably a safe bet to say that not many people have tried building igloos in their backyards! The simplest way of building this type of structure is to use a technique called a “Russian-style igloo”. First of all, choose a flat piece of ground, build up a big pile of different objects and lay some kind of cover over it so that the snow can’t get inside. The bigger this pile is, the more impressive your igloo will be. The next step is to get out the snow shovel and build up between 30 and 40 cm of snow over the hillock, packing it down as you go. After this, choose which side you want the door and start digging! This will enable you to take out all the objects you’ve used to give the right shape to your igloo. At this point, most of the hard work is done but keep piling snow over the entire structure to have a thickness of at least 40 cm, if not more. Finally, try to smooth the surface as much as possible so water cannot infiltrate the igloo and spoil your comfort. Children can amuse themselves for hours in this new play house but be sure to check it frequently to make sure it is still safe to use. The more daring among us may even want to sleep in it! If you and the children do spend a night there, be sure to wrap up warmly so everyone enjoys the experience.

A skating rink in your backyard W

hat? A skating rink in my yard? Never, it could ruin everything! Well, no. If your yard is big enough, you can build your own skating rink without causing any damage to your property. Choose a flat surface that is close to a source of water and electricity. A cement or grass surface is preferable to asphalt because black asphalt absorbs the sun’s rays and reduces the longevity of the ice. If you don’t have any other surface, spread a thin layer of gravel over the asphalt. In gardening and renovation centers, you will find starter kits that include polyethylene or vapor-barrier sheets, along with instructions to facilitate the task. Spread the sheets directly on the lawn, before the first snow, and then wait until about 10 cm of snow have accumulated. If it’s too late and you already have a good thickness of hard snow, you can use it instead of polyethylene sheets. Use a shovel or a lawn roller to really pack the snow and create a 60 cm band of snow all around the rink to prevent the sun from damaging the ice. The secret: apply numerous thin layers of finely-sprayed water. You must water one strip at a time, width-wise, until everything is soaked. Wait between each layer; each layer must be well-frozen before you proceed with the next. Solid ice must be between 6 and 10 cm thick. To prevent the frost from splitting your hose, store it in the garage between waterings.

With a skating rink in your yard, you will be able to teach your children to skate and enjoy skating whenever you please, without being disturbed.

Cold hands, warm body! E

verybody outside! It’s winter, it’s nice, it’s cold, it feels good, and we want to have fun! However, if you’re the type who gets cold easily, you may not be a big fan of winter activities. You definitely need a little help to be able to fully enjoy outside activities, even in very cold weather. First, put away the long coat that hangs down to your ankles and is three to four centimeters thick! Instead, go with multiple layers that let you add or remove a layer as required. The multi-layer method is more efficient at conserving body heat. Isn’t that how we protect babies from the cold, with an extra blanket? Choose clothes made of wool or synthetic fibers, which conserve heat more effectively than cotton. Outer fabrics, like Gore-Tex, Helly-Tech, and Climate, repel humidity while allowing excess heat to escape. The warmer the body, the warmer the extremities will be. Don’t neglect your feet, your hands, and your head. Up to 40 percent of your body heat can escape through an unprotected head. Cold or damp feet and hands contribute to cooling the rest of the body. Always wear a close-fitting tuque in cold weather, as well as good gloves and warm boots. You will never regret your investment, for you and every member of your family.

Amusing winter experiments for children

W

inter is the perfect season for the young and the young at heart; it is an immense scientific laboratory that young and old will take great pleasure in examining under the microscope! Here are a few suggestions for experiments that you can perform with your family this winter. Crystal balls: Choose a very cold day with hardly any wind. You will need a mixing jar, some glycerin, and some sugar. Mix the ingredients well. Take a straw and make four one-centimeter slits at one end. Dip the end with the slits into the liquid and then blow into the straw very softly. You must go very slowly so that the bubble does not break. As the bubble forms and freezes, it is transformed into a crystal ball. Snow crystals on glass: This experiment is performed on a snowy day. You will need a glass plate and some hairspray. Keep both items in the freezer until you are ready to use them. During a snowfall, spray the frozen glass plate with the frozen hairspray, then expose the plate to the snow long enough to cover it with a single or multiple layers of snowflakes, depending on the desired effect. Bring it indoors and let it warm up for 15 minutes. Admire the glorious permanent results! Snow sorbet: Prepare this “meal” during or immediately after a major, immaculate snowfall. You will need fresh and impeccably clean snow, some unfrozen (but cold) concentrated fruit juice, and a glass. Fill the glass with snow and cover with concentrated juice.
