They cited the annual Ski to Sea race as an example of some of the activities available for locals as well as visitors. The race has cross-country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, running, road biking, canoeing, mountain biking and kayaking. There's loads of great hiking trails in and around the city, as well as other activities like sailing, motor-boating, rock climbing, horseback riding, water-skiing, wakeboarding, Scuba diving, crabbing, golf, running, Iron-man events and a few more outdoor activities I'm sure I left out not to mention an active sports community with loads of soccer, rugby, and even LaCrosse.
Let's not forget all the great parks in Bellingham and the Lakes, Whatcom, Padden, Samish, and Emerald, and Larabee State Park and the Mt. Baker not to far away.
