1. You’re never too old to build a snowman. You may think you’re too old, and then you build another. A landmark of winter tradition, building a snowman is the perfect opportunity to bond with friends and family. Go all out - grab a hat, some carrots, a scarf, the works. Just have fun with it.

  2. You’ve got two roads to choose from when you face a mountain of snow: snowboard, or ski. The latter is a worthy choice. Picture yourself weaving down the Alps, slicing through an alpine obstacle course. People don’t have enough thrills during the year as is. Don’t let winter go by without going skiing at least once.

  3. Thrill seekers, rejoice. If building a snowman isn’t quite your pace, snowboarding might be what you’re looking for. Whether you’re an expert or an amateur, the adrenaline rush is the same. Fly down the mountainside. Push your limits and make memories.

  4. City dwellers will tell you, walking through the streets in the winter can be as beautiful as it is sad. If you’re reading this, you’re fortunate enough to have the opportunity to cross of goals from our Winter BucketLists, without worry for food or shelter. Many aren’t so lucky. Soup kitchens run on volunteers. They provide food for homeless, a bit of warmth in a season that can be so cold when you’re stuck outdoors. A few of hours of volunteering can make a tangible difference

  5. Being a good neighbor isn’t reserved for wealthy suburbs or State Farm commercials. The best communities are built on giving. Before you go out and take advantage of the foot of the snow that just fell, realize that someone might really need your help shoveling their driveway. Build up your karma, and do some good.

  6. You can’t spell February without football. Well, you can, but that’s not the point. Whether you’re a fan of America’s game or not, the sheer spectacle of a Super Bowl is enough to bring curious visitors from around the world. A restless season of vicious and hard-fought battles culminates in a cold February evening. Just one question: will you be there?

  7. Unfortunately, you can’t have snow without cold. Just how it is. The cold can wear you down after a while. You’ve got to stay warm. That means drinking hot cocoa, bundling up in blankets, and, yes, cuddling in front of a fire place. Flames crackling on wood logs, the distant smell of smoke, the right person beside … you might end up wanting the moment to last forever.
