    Now that the snow has arrived,  it's time to get outdoors and enjoy the wonderful scenery for which our area is famous.

    Whether it's a  brisk walk along the Long Island Sound  waterfront,  communing with nature in the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation or cross-country skiing along the Old Croton Aqueduct Trailway, there are plenty of activities to  lure us off the couch and out-of-doors.

    For some lucky residents, winter fun is right at their doorstep. Here are few luxury properties for sale that make it easy to enjoy the winter months.

    Fourviews in Bedford offers miles of groomed trails perfect for hiking and snow-shoeing . Totally private, the beauty of this serene setting is magnified by the unspoiled natural splendor of the 400-acre Mianus River Gorge Preserve that surrounds the property.

    You'll never be bored at Sky Blue Farm in Millbrook where the recreational amenities rival those of a 5-star resort. Particularly remarkable is the lighted outdoor skating rink equipped with a separate chiller and Zamboni that is sure to become a popular spot for hockey enthusiasts and recreational skaters alike. And when it's time to take a break, there's a cozy viewing shed with a fireplace to keep everyone warm.

    There's nothing like the dazzling lake at Will O' Woods in Croton-on-Hudson for outdoor fun. A  hub for entertaining  in the summer, the private 8-acre lake is perfect for skating parties in the winter. In addition to the two other ponds on the property, there are also great woodland trails and gentle hills for sledding that makes this the perfect spot for winter-time fun.
