With today's fresh snow and the temps right around freezing, you can go ice skating, either in downtown Douglas or Saugatuck, Michigan. Cross country ski or snowshoe at the state park (you can rent both at Landsharks). Do some sledding at Westshore Golf Course (2nd hole is the best! and we have sleds).
