7 Fun Adventures to Have This Winter Weekend

Oftentimes, people see the winter’s cold, rain, and snow and make excuses to recline indoors. They sit on the couch, watch movies, and claim that adventure is impossible during the winter months.

False. The winter provides unique and epic adventures that can lead to incredible opportunities and memories. Here are seven winter adventures that you can have this weekend.

1. Snowshoeing
If you live near a snowy area, acquire some snowshoes (rent or purchase) and go for a winter hike in the forest. Snowshoeing is an incredible workout and you’ll see some scenery that’s only available during a few months in the year.

2. Ice Fishing
Brave the cold and dangerous icy conditions. Bore a hole in a frozen lake (make sure the lake is solidly frozen). Enjoy the survival techniques that Inuit people developed over many millennia.

3. Hiking (in the Rain)
Oregonians know that a little rain is no obstacle to adventure. Grab a waterproof jacket and go for a usual hike in the rain. Main benefit: no one else will be on the trail, which gives the trail an isolated feeling.

4. Snowboarding/Skiing
Utilize the winter waves, grab your snowboard or skis, and head to the mountains. If you don’t know how, find someone to teach you. It’s a skill that will provide winter adventures for years to come.

5. Snow Camping
Take your sub zero temperature sleeping bag and head into the wilderness for some winter camping. Take the usual camping experience and intensify the survival tactics by camping in the winter.

6. National Park Exploration
No crowds, new views, and unique photo opportunities. No one visits National parks in the winter. You’ll experience views that you can’t see during any other season. Plus, you can take crazy photos of insane landscapes in the snow.

7. Visit City Museums
If you’re looking for an indoor adventure, the winter provides the perfect chance to visit your local city’s history. Check out art museums, history centers, and performing arts right in your own backyard.

This concludes our list. If we missed anything, let us know! Send your responses to and see your writing in print!
