2018 Winter Activity List
Going to college in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan I quickly fell in love with winter, and all nature has to offer. Fast forward to the present, and I dread winter. In Michigan it’s always gloomy and gray and driving in the mess just gives me all sorts of anxiety. Winter depression kicks in and I find myself spending more time indoors wallowing than outside having fun. This year I am making it a point to get the most out of winter and have as much fun as possible. A huge helping factor is the guy I am dating runs at the same energy level as me and gets my sense of wander and adventure so we always have a ton of fun together which should hopefully rub off during the dreariest months of the year. Here are 9 things I want to do/try this winter. What’s on your list?
1. Ski or Snowboard
I have never tried either before, and have always wanted to. I am really hoping this is the year I finally try one or the other. Bonus the boy loves going – so hopefully he’s willing to help me through it.
2. Cross Country Ski
I haven’t done it since college, but it’s something that I really would like to get out and do again.
Snowshoeing is one of my favorite winter activities, it really allows me to get out there and explore the snowy terrain.
4. Hot tub in the snow
Seriously, so much fun and calming.
5. Head up north to check out the ice caves, ice balls, pancakes…etc.
The great lakes produce some serious amazingness in the winter.
6. Go tubing
Great way to get out and have some innocent fun.
7. Fat bike in the snow
because who wouldn’t want to bike in the snow?
8. Ride a snowmobile
Haven’t been on one in awhile and would just be fun to get out and see some new scenery.
9. Go ice skating
I’m not a great skater, but I love going and it’s always such a good time.
