When everyone gets bored with the indoor things to do at home, there are plenty of activities to explore elsewhere, and not far from your front door!
In addition to our very own YMCA at the Overlook’s programs and classes, we told you last summer about the Erie Community Center on Powers Street – it’s also a great place to burn up extra energy and keep everybody occupied in the winter, too!

If you have wee ones who need to learn how to ski and snowboard before hitting the bunny runs, Shredder Urban Ski and Snowboard Park is the go-to school of choice. The hills at this indoor facility are primed with a combination of water and wax that helps skiers slide down the surface and grip for turning and stopping. Gear is included, but you can bring your own to learn the basics and to sharpen ski skills!
