8 Winter Activities To Experience On Your Next Glamping Trip

Winter is a time of year where sometimes all you want to do is curl up under a blanket, eat soup, and drink hot cocoa, but it’s actually the most perfect time to get outside and try new things. Here are nine winter adventure activities I’ve experienced and you should too on your next snow-covered glamping stay.

1. HIT THE SLOPES THEN APRES SKI

Whether it’s your first lesson, or you’re a seasoned snowboarder or an off-piste pro, there’s nothing more refreshing than when the cool mountain air hits your face as you take turns down the slopes. Equally as gratifying is the glass of wine and a pot of fondue after a long days work in your ski boots.

2. TOBOGGANING

A thrilling backcountry experience, hop on a snowmobile and feed your inner adrenaline junky. Many winter destinations even have their own ‘highways’ for use getting to school or work and back.

Being pulled through the snow-laden forest by a pack of huskies eager for a good long run is a truly memorable experience – one for those ready to sit back, enjoy the ride, and maybe snap a few pictures along the way.

Ice-fishing is a patient mans (or woman) activity best done with a group of friends. Depends on the day what you’ll bring in, but half the fun is the conversation and catching up with friends.

8. ICE BATHING

An out of body experience, hopping in an ice-cold lake is an activity you’ll be telling your friends about for years to come. I’m told by locals practicing it regularly that ice bathing helps to push mental limits.
