    1. Ear Gear
    2. Can I Wear my Hearing Aids while Skiing and Snowboarding?
    3. Kids with Hearing Loss

    1. How Winter Weather can Affect your Hearing Aids
  3. Surfer’s Ear (I had no idea that this was a thing until I came across the article!)
  4. Backup plans: what to do if your hearing aid/CI dies during holiday break
    1. Talk to your audiologist! Find out what their office hours are, and if they have an emergency contact.

Stay warm folks!
