1. Snowball Fighting
It’s clear sports fans already love snowball fights. This is a no-brainer.
Everyone loves sledding :)
3. Snow Angels
As these bikini-clad college girls demonstrate, competitive snow angelling is not for the faint of heart.
4. Snowmobile Racing
I think we can all agree that the Olympics needs more motorized sports, just generally speaking.
5. Shovel Racing
Guys, can we at least get some shovel racing in here too?
6. Extreme Snowblowing!
Watch as drivers go head-to-head!
7. Snowman Building
It also reminds us all of an important life lesson: Snowmen are not living things.
8. Polar Bear Club
This is such an extreme sport. Totally Olympics material.
9. Dogsled Racing
10. Ice Sculpture
It’s as arty and beautiful as ice skating, but with chainsaws.

Hot toddy. Say it. Say it! Hot toddy!!
