It is common to think that you are very limited in what to do during winter outings. Winter is associated with the cold, dark, and sometimes quite bleak outdoors but is so underrated with its options. If you do not want your usual winter routines, follow this advice to make it unforgettable. 


A great winter activity that can accommodate all ages and skill levels is skiing! Whether you live near a ski lodge or are close to mountains, it can be as big or as small of a commitment as you want it to be. You can go for the day, weekend, or a week depending on how far you travel. If you are a beginner, do not fret, there are easy ways to learn and simple slopes to help you get comfortable. 

An excellent location to ski is in Whistler, Canada. It is home to one of the largest ski resorts in North America. Located at the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain’s base, your skiing here will be utterly magnificent with its views. And while you are at it, make sure to look at real estate for sale in Whistler.

Warm Weather or Snow Escape 

Some people’s go-to winter outings are literally going out of the home. If being cooped up in your house has been too much recently, plan a trip! The first thing to determine is if you want to go out somewhere warm or cold. Are you the person that wants to take long walks on the beach, get your tan on and enjoy the sunshine by the pool? Or would you prefer to go somewhere out West, cozied up in a log cabin located below the mountains, enjoying the fire and watching the sunset behind the snow? Either one is a good choice! 

Plan a Special Movie Night

After a long week of work or online classes, it is always good to unwind and relax. Since it is harder to stuff outdoors during the winter, plan for a special movie night! You can invite friends and family to join, even if it is over Zoom or Facetime! Start the night off with a delicious dinner or a charcuterie board, do some face masks, and finish the night off with an enjoyable movie with a hot chocolate or some wine. 

See the Lights

In winter, especially during the holiday season, people put up lights outside their homes. If you are bored and looking for something to do, hop in your car and drive around some beautiful neighborhoods to enjoy the lights! This is great to do at night and when there is a light snow coming down. Put on some peaceful and happy music and enjoy yourself! 

Ice Skating

Ice skating is something that no matter how talented you are, it always ends up making good memories. Although there might not be a place near you, making a day escape to an ice skating rink is a wonderful family moment. 


The winter months does not mean you have to be cooped up in the house being bored. Take advantage of the different activities you can enjoy or places you can see!
