Winter is generous with snow in Lithuania, but nature wasn't generous with mountains. don't expect the Alps , but we do have hills! Consequently, we have few skiing trails. Two of them are ready in Birstonas (160 and 300 meters long) with an "elevator" that brings you to the top. You can also do some normal skiing in the forests and close to the river. Next to the trails there's a fun trail for kids with sledges (or some other inventions that let you go down with fun, even on your butt ;-)).
Equipment: you can rent the skiis.
Other skiing town is Ignalina.

Yacht club and water scooters
Birstonas has the most popular yacht-club and training spot for various water sports like kayaking, canoeing, scooter racing etc. The day I was there I could see children getting ready for the motor-boats race the next day which was dedicated to Birstonas Days Festival on June 5-8, 2003.
