New Year's Eve Celebrations.
After a few rounds of "wake up too late on New Year's Day because New Year's Eve went a little too long" we started looking for alternatives. Why not wake up on the first day of the New Year doing the thing we love the most -- spending time outside? Here are some ideas from around the country where you can wear yourself out on New Year's Eve playing in the outdoors and waking up New Year's Day with the opportunity to do it all over again.
You know those Rockwellian images of runner sleds, snowflakes, mittens and jovial people enjoying it all? Those are the images we use to define the holiday season...but what about when it's un-seasonably warm OR you live in an area where snowfall isn't at all likely? How can you sled when Mother-Nature refuses to cooperate?
Hunting for a Christmas Tree
Truth be told, this all started years ago looking at the price of trees in a tree lot.
This holiday GSI Outdoors will be giving its employees December 24 to January 1st off to get outside with friends and family. We ask that you join us #INTHETREES this holiday to enjoy the outdoors that we all love so much. Because “it is all about the outdoors, the rest is meaningless…” right?
Backcountry Hot Cocoa Bar
When the mercury drops, our attention often turns to activities we can do outside. We hike, ski, snowshoe, maybe build a snowman; but cooler temperatures can sometimes make us forget about "hang out" time. We've got a simple solution.
8 Favorite Sledding Spots
The holiday season has started and winter's right around the corner. It's the time of the year when, regardless of Mother Nature's willingness to comply, we start wishing for the cold. Images of snow gently dusting evergreen trees, snowmen, snow capped mountains and sledding hills are the things of seasonal daydreams. From the ages of four to 84 (well maybe consult your doctor first if you're actually 84), sledding is guaranteed to put smiles on everyone's face. Family coming for the holidays? Take them sledding. Want a holiday celebration with friends? Yep...sledding.
