Fun Winter Activities

It’s that time of year again, that time where most people complain about the cold and the snow. WINTER! Since we don’t have control over Mother Earth, here are some ways to make your winter pass just a little faster:

Snow-shoeing at night

Not in the mood of waiting in line at a club in the cold? Why not warm up by doing an activity? Some National Parks offer show-shoeing activities at night. For all of you who live in Quebec, you can go to Mont Tremblant (among many other Parks in the region) and choose one of the packages: some snow-showing, hot chocolate and relax by a fireplace or  some snow-showing, owls and chocolate, all for $14- $40. If you don’t live in the area, do some research and find out where they offer it near you! It’s fun and you’ll be getting a workout!

Outdoor Spa

Instead of freezing outside, why not relax in a hot tub? Most spas (if not all) are open in the winter so it’s a great time to relax and enjoy some warmth while everyone else is freezing! Great way to enjoy winter and relax!

Ice Climbing

Learn to love ice! Why not try ice climbing? This is something I always wanted to try but never got around it! Many places offer courses so it’s definitely worth looking into. For all you Montrealers, Terra Ultima offers courses for beginners every week for $69 +tx.

Rent Winter-Related Movies and Sip on Hot Chocolate

If your feeling lazy, you can always chill at home, rent movies while keeping warm under a cover or by a fireplace while sipping on hot chocolate! Yeah, that sounds good alright! Here are some fun and adventurous movies you can consider for your next movie night. Don’t forget the hot chocolate!

  • Trans-siberian: Embark in this journey from China to Moscow!
  • Into The Wild: A graduate gives up everything to hitchhike to Alaska and live in the wild.
  • 127 Hours: A solo mountain climber who gets trapped under a rock.
