What does everyone do to stay fit in the winter months (especially when very snowy).  Do you work out at home?  Go to a gym?

I know my first wife loved The Women's Club and my new wife goes to Curves (allegedly) and they seem to be popular places for the ladies but what about us men?  It can be easy to overdo the crock pot all winter and pack on an extra 25 pounds even while eating relatively healthy.

Any winter exercise tips or hot spots?

If you ski or snowboard, winter sports are good exercise.  I believe there are several ski areas around here?  Cross country skiing is fun and more low impact yet REALLY GOOD exercise.  I would like to get into that again, as I did it a few times last winter in Colorado.

I was thinking of joining a gym myself this winter to tone up and keep in shape.  I know how cold winters can be in MT....

Then there are always those yoga and exercise videos at home that were stashed away all summer.

I want to take up cross country skiing. I've heard the University of Montana has a massive sale every year with used gear. Does anyone know when/where it is?

Yeah that should be coming up any time now.

Last year it was early November at Big Sky High I think.
