Settling into your new home in Lehigh County at The Reserve at Highgate provides a warm, cozy place to consider the many ways to spend your recreational time. As the frost gives way to winter, the seasonal change is a sign to an array of exciting outdoor adventures.

Every year, residents of Lehigh County enjoy living within 30 minutes of activities such as downhill sledding and tubing, alpine skiing, polar plunging and ice-skating.

Slide Across the Snow

Sledding is a time-tested way of introducing your little ones to the many wonders of playing in the snow. The initial thrill of effortlessly sliding downhill will make them eager for more. Meanwhile, you can stand by and relax as they willingly wear themselves out hiking back to the top of the hill over and over again.

There are numerous locations near Breinigsville, PA with mild inclines that are acceptable for wintertime sledding. These include Buchanan Elementary School, Cedar Beach Park and Springhouse Middle School, all within 30 minutes.

Glide Down the Hills

Sledding naturally gives way to other downhill experiences. Various mountain resorts in and around the Lehigh Valley offer winter excitement that includes tubing, skiing and snowboarding for all ages.

A quick drive from Breinigsville, PA– Bear Creek Mountain Resort features numerous lifts that whisk you up the side of the mountain so that you can ride down on an oversized inflated tube, glide through the slopes on skis or plough through on a snowboard. This resort is the perfect winter destination for residents of new homes in Lehigh County — whether you’re orchestrating a family gathering or planning a team building adventure for your professional colleagues.

Just outside the local community, there are additional resort destinations an hour away such as Blue Mountain Resort, Camelback Resort and Jack Frost Big Boulder that offer more options for downhill fun.

Take the Plunge

If you’re an extreme adventurer with a flair for charity, the Lehigh Valley Plunge puts your nerves against the frigid February waters of the Delaware River. Participants pledge a donation upon entering and plunge away in a stream of brave wintertime swimmers.

This event and many others like it across the state are organized by Special Olympics who appropriate the proceeds into programs designed to benefit athletes across Pennsylvania with special needs.

Lace up Your Skates

Ice-skating offers a more horizontal experience for those who don’t appreciate slick inclines. You can hop in the car at your Lehigh County home at The Reserve at Highgate and be pulling up to an ice rink in half an hour or less.

The Rink at Lehigh Valley is just 25 minutes away and offers public skating on weekends, hockey leagues and private rentals. The Earl E. Schaffer Municipal Ice Rink is a mere 30 minutes away, and offers ice skating lessons for all skill levels and interests.
