The winter season may be a perfect time of year to plan a weekend getaway for the family. The daylight hours are shorter and the temperatures might be colder, but that doesn’t mean that the fun should stop. Here are three unique ideas for planning a fun weekend getaway this winter.
1. Head Up to the Mountains
When winter rolls in, many people automatically think about snow and enjoying the ski slopes. Heading up to the mountains for a ski or snowboard trip may be a wonderful idea to consider as a weekend holiday. Skiing and snowboarding can be incredibly fun for the entire family. And for individuals who have not yet learned how to ski or snowboard, taking a lesson for a few hours may familiarize them with the basics of the sports. To add an interesting spin on a weekend in the mountains, it may be a great idea to consider staying at a vacation rental home – such as one of the houses available at Mount Snow Vermont vacation rentals – instead of booking a hotel. Staying at a residence is a wonderful way to see a new community and experience what life is like living at the slopes.
2. Jump on a Snow Mobile for a Wild Ride
Riding snow mobiles may be an exhilarating activity for the family. Renting a snow mobile and taking a ride through the snow-covered forests may be fantastic way to tour a new area and see the beauty of a winter wonderland. (Be sure to wear a helmet for safety.)
3. Simply “Chill” by the Fire
Another idea for a unique winter weekend is to simply stay at home, relax, and watch movies by the fireplace. A “staycation” can be a nice way for loved ones to spend time together in the winter and never even have to leave the house!
