Winter activities offer fun for the whole family, so make sure you've got all your gear ready to go. A sled and toboggan are must-have items for hitting the local slopes. You might also want to pick up some brand new snow tubes, as some venues now offer dedicated snow tubing hills. For milder days, consider backyard entertaining with patio heaters, an outdoor fire pit, or even an outdoor fireplace. For guests and family alike, you'll want to keep your home safe throughout winter. A good snowblower and snow shovel will keep your driveway and pathway clear. Ice melter is also essential to help prevent slips and falls. Consider a snow fence and roof rake too, as heavy accumulation can pose a hazard to pedestrians. For auto safety, make sure you've got a roadside safety kit and booster cables in all your vehicles, and are stocked up on anti-freeze and other fluids.
