8 inches of snow in Eugene, Oregon, and you’d think the entire city shuts down. Think again, or look a little more closely: maybe the roads are less traveled by cars, but Eugenians know there are countless ways to move. Over the weekend, I saw the following modes of transportation utilized:

  • snowshoeing
  • cross country skiing
  • running
  • biking
  • snowboarding (down a blocked-off-to-cars, hilly neighborhood road)
  • down hill sledding
  • sled-pulling, as a means of transporting sleeping children–stacked on top of each other like a sandwich

Feeling like getting creative? Check out these helpful DIY options to making running and biking more snow-friendly. Don’t let that snow stop you from moving your body!
