Winter Sports in Northern Kentucky
The winters in Northern Kentucky are usually mild compared to the areas even within 100 miles of us. The top two winter sports in Northern Kentucky are ice skating and snow skiing. Because of the limited frigid temperatures, our winter sport season is normally from mid December to late February. My girls love spending times on the ice and on the slopes. We actually start schooling a month early just so they have 2 or 3 days to spend outside during winter.
There are several ice rinks in the area are open year round and the parks department of nearby Cincinnati sets up an outdoor skating rink when temperatures allow, which is the place to go for fun.
Winter sports take their own special kind of clothing and equipment. For my crew, we have found that purchasing our equipment has been a better value over renting. Thankfully we have a local source for ski related gear but for things like our skates and skating bag, skates.guru was highly recommended by the staff and skaters we asked.
Skates.Guru is know as the Ice Skating Store. They have been in business for a long time and have a great customer review listing online. They carry a large range of ice skating equipment and apparel.
I appreciate that ordering was easy and their sizing charts are accurate. They carry products from top brands such as Riedell, Jackson, Zuca and Guardog. Their customer service staff are nice and ready to answer any question about their product line. I felt like a kid in the candy store. I had no idea there were so many options and variety available in the world of ice skating!
From boots, to blades and bags to mittens, Skates.guru has it covered. Did you know that skates actually come in kids, beginners, intermediate and advanced? I had no idea. I honestly thought skates were skates…but I was wrong!
Some of our favorite bags were the zuca sport bag and the zuca skating bag. Both of these are well made bags that can hold up to a lot of use. I have to admit I was impressed at some of the bags. Several of them would be perfect for me as much as I travel because they have hang up compartments on each side and the poles telescope open tall enough to hang all your clothing. Impressive to say the least!
Another thing that I appreciate about skates.guru is that they offer free two day shipping on orders. Returns if required are super easy too.
So whatever your winter sport may be, make sure you check out the deals on products at skates.guru. They can outfit you from head to toe if ice skating is your chosen sport but they also carry other winter weather gear that are perfect for other sports like skiing.
