The cursed Ohio Winter Monster has made its presence known to all with its 5pm sunsets, snow storms, and seasonal depression for all. How are you going to fight back against the gloom this year? It may seem like it’s impossible to do fun things with your friends or to stay active in the winter, but I’m here to tell you that not all hope is lost. Finding a new hobby is a great way to kick your winter woes to the curb and start the new decade on a good foot.
Skiing can be a great way to casually exercise with friends and resuscitate your serotonin levels. Here are three high quality places to ski within driving distance of Columbus for you to check out.
MAD RIVER MOUNTAIN
Located in Zanesfield, Mad River Mountain is about an hour's drive northwest of Columbus. They have the most reasonable prices of all the nearby ski resorts. Plus, their on-property bar, The Loft, has 12 taps of craft beers on rotation to add a little more fun to the night. Mad River is open until 1 a.m. on Fridays, too, so you’re getting a full Friday night of flurries.
Mad River is home to over 20 trails (spanning 3.9 miles) and four terrain parks making it the largest ski resort in Ohio. They also bolster ten ski lifts (the most in Ohio) and are tied with Snowtrails for the largest vertical drop in the state with their 300 foot slope. An added perk of Mad River is that they just built a new $6.2 million facility in 2016 to replace the space they lost to a fire in 2015. Plus, most of their trails are designated “easy” difficulty. Mad River has everything you need to have a relaxing, affordable day of skiing.

Founded in 1961, Snowtrails is Ohio’s
oldest ski resort. It is located in Mansfield,
so also about an hour drive north. This
resort is only slightly more expensive,
with lift rates starting at $31 for midweek
evenings and $52 for all-day on the
weekends, with skis, boots, and pole rentals
are $37. If there’s one day this month that
you visit Snowtrails, let it be January 25
for their mid-season party. Get ready for
an outdoor DJ, a custom built snowbar,
and a fireworks show 30 minutes after the
slopes close for the night. Not into skiing?
No problem! The party is free and open to
the public, so let your expert friends hit the
slopes while you hit the spirits at the snow
Snowtrails is the second largest resort
in the state with six ski lifts and 3.3 miles
of trails. The majority of their trails are
designated “intermediate” difficulty, so
more experienced skiers will enjoy their

BOSTON MILLS &
Boston Mills & Brandywine is the farthest ski resort from Columbus on this list, but great for a full weekend away. This quaint resort is in Peninsula, OH is a two hour drive from Central Ohio. Their pricing is $40 after 3:30 p.m. and $45 for an all-day pass. Staying another night? Come back on Saturday for $5 Late Nights admission from 8:00 PM to 1:00 AM.
Boston Mill & Brandywine ski resort
is known for being especially conducive to
beginning skiers. They offer high quality
lessons and will walk you through the
process. This is the place to go if you have
“stupid” questions about skiing, or just
want to tube. However, they also appeal
to veteran skiers as the majority of their 18
trails are designated “advanced”. Despite
the high quantity of trails, this resort is
much smaller than the other two, with only
1.2 miles of skiable trails, and their largest
vertical drop being 264 feet. But for these
prices? Could definitely be worth the trip.

At a glance, "The Journey AR Mural" adorning the Graduate Columbus hotel in Short North is stunning. Look a little harder, and it actually comes to life.
Standing at over 107 feet tall and over 11,000 square feet of augmented reality, "The Journey AR Mural," is the world's largest AR mural, offering technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view.
The gaily-painted snapdragons, hibiscus, Easter lilies, and hummingbirds bloom and fly when viewed through the Journey AR Mural app (free for iPhone and Android). Watch the murals come to life in the video below.
Los Angeles-based artists Ryan Sarfati and Eric Skotnes (going by “Yanoe” and “Zoueh," respectively) are the creatives behind the project.
In an interview with Short North Arts District, Skotnes revealed he was inspired to take on the project after learning that Columbus is home to the second largest population of Somali immigrants in the country—he hopes the murals symbolize strength and prosperity for its viewers.
