Winter Is Almost Here: 3 Ways That You Can Really Make The Most Of It

Winter is in many ways my favorite time of the year.  I love snow and hiking in fresh, crisp air.  Today's post is written by returning guest writer Joe Petchonka and is about three really good ways to get out and enjoy the winter wonderland.  I hope you enjoy.

Winter is one of my favorite seasons, with fall coming in at a close second. While most people probably aren’t big fans of the cold months because of the annoying snow and inability to stay warm when outside for a little while, it’s exactly those reasons why I love the winter!
There’s nothing more fun that a snowy day with a cup of hot chocolate, a nice book, and a fire going in the background.

But if you’re more of the outdoors type like I am, here are three great ways to have complete fun this winter:
Give Snow Tubing a Chance

While snowboarding and skiing are amazing winter activities that are undoubtedly exciting, snow tubing is never thought of the same way. Perhaps it’s because the snow tubing ranges at popular ski resorts aren’t very big, which make snowboarding and skiing on full mountain sides look like a better option.
I guarantee that if you did this yourself or found a mountain that offers larger downhill tubing ranges for families to enjoy, you’d have just as much fun!

Never Forget About Hiking
While you probably don’t want to be hiking in three feet of snow, you can hike in snow that is only a couple of inches or so.

Have you ever been hiking and thought that your view from atop a mountain or large hill was amazing? Yeah, when it’s snowing out and everything is white, it’s a spectacular sight! You really don’t want to miss out on that view.
You could take a hike to your favorite spot and see how different it is.

Snowmobiling
Sounds pretty expensive, and you’d be right if you were buying your own snowmobile. But you can find some to rent if you look for a few minutes online. You’ll find that if you get a bunch of these together with your friends and family, you’ll realize how amazing these machines are for ripping through snow and flying around the mountains.

That about does it: three sweet activities for the winter months. Enjoy!

  1. I always think of an outdoor activity together with my family especially when winter is coming, I find it the best weather when it comes to camping, hiking or fishing. Among all the activities I'm planning me and my family prefers camping because we get to sleep in and enjoy the view of the nature whenever we are spending a night or two in a camping site. Also the camping events are just amazingly good, thrilling and enjoyable. Well, apparently our plan this summer is to go try trekking cause I heard it's a must try activity so more likely, I'll be betting on that with my family. Nice and precise blog by the way, keep them going!
