8. Snow Birthing

This is that cool game where you are buried up to your armpits in snow and you have to dig your way out. First one out of the hole wins!

Just shoveling piles of snow, but as a professional sport. And with corgis. Why haven't they thought of this?

Like shoveling your way out of your house, but instead of a shovel you use your paws. In fact, shovels are cheating! If cats can do it, we can do it.

12. Snow Denying

Contestants pretend it's summer and stay outdoors for as long as possible. The last one standing is the winner! It's not for everyone.

13. Snow Swimming

There's a right way and a wrong way to do this, and we don't need to tell you which is which.

If you're serious about winter, gear up and get outside with Nike's cold-weather gear, and turn a snow day into the sporting event it deserves to be.
