If you’ve been reading this blog for a little while, you’ll probably know that we’re located in Vancouver, Canada. For those of you that don’t know, Vancouver isn’t exactly considered the most wintery of places in Canada, or in North America for that matter, but we have the convenience of the mountains at our doorstep, hence why we hosted the Winter Olympics in 2010! As such I feel fully qualified to create this beloved winter bucket list (especially after the holidays are over and there’s not much to look forward to). These are some of my ultimate winter bucket list ideas! If I missed anything, let me know in the comments, there’s just so much to do in this fluffiest of seasons!
The Ultimate Winter Bucket List
1. Eat fresh snow
Literally every time it snowed in Saskatchewan (where I grew up) my mum would warn us not to eat the snow because it, “wasn’t healthy” but being young and always a little bit rebellious, we would dig in to the cleanest, fluffiest part we could find. And I’m going to be honest, after I’d feel a bit off inside, but it was worth it. Be warned sticking out your tongue to catch the fresh stuff is probably the best way to eat snow, oh and don’t eat yellow snow EVER.
2. Slide down fresh snow
Once you’ve filled up your tummies with snow, you’ve got to ski, snowboard, toboggan (sledding), slide on your butt, slip and slide, snow skate down a slope. You’ve just got to do it, it’s like the law of winter bucket lists. If you’re lucky and near a mountain, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of shredding powder.
3. Go skating with friends
Practically a right of passage! Skating with friends is fun whether your a seasoned pro or just starting your figure skating career.
4. Build the Perfect Snowman
If it snows and the snow is just right, then you have to make a snowman. So collect your coal the perfect carrot, a hat and a scarf. If you’re going to build it, make it right!
5. Travel to Somewhere Warm
This may be a sacrilegious suggestion for a winter bucket list, but when those winter blues hit, there’s nothing quite like booking a trip to the beach. The sun and sand after the months of the cold and wind is like stepping into paradise!
Self-explanitory: it’s awesome, it’s fun, you go fast, and it’s awesome.
7. Curl up by the fireplace with the perfect book
It’s the simple things in the winter. When you come home from a long day at school or the office, get the fire going, it will warm you up from the inside out. And what could be better than finding the perfect book to dive into?
