Winter is one of the best seasons for outdoor activities – the powder is fresh, the air crisp, and the opportunities for adventure countless. At StorQuest, we’ve put together a few tips to thrive during the colder months in New York.
Bundle Up Before You Explore
When it comes to having an awesome New York winter, it all starts with having the right gear to protect you from the chill. Invest in a few nice winter coats that are designed for low temps. Don’t forget about the accessories! Hats, gloves, scarves, and boots are all just as important when it comes to getting through winter comfortably and in style. Check out REI, Patagonia, and The North Face for some top-notch gear
Take a Winter Trip
Winter turns an already beautiful state into something extraordinary. Find an Airbnb and take a long weekend experiencing winter somewhere new. A few of our favorite NY adventure getaways include: exploring the rock formations at Minnewaska State Park Preserve in Gardiner, skiing the trails at Lake Placid, and snowshoeing along Wittenberg Trail in Phoenicia.
Embrace a New Winter Activity
When the snow comes, so do limitless new ways to enjoy the outdoors. Bundle up and try out a winter activity that you’ve never done before. Maybe you are a downhill skier but you’ve never tried cross country. Grab some friends and give it a go! Maybe you have a few go-to snowshoeing trails. Try exploring somewhere you haven’t been yet. We live in an adventurer’s oasis. Get out there and experience it from a different perspective.
Perfect Your Space
After a day out on the mountain, there is nothing better than coming home to a warm blanket and a mug of something hot. Take some time to cozy up your home. Pull extra blankets out of storage. Make sure your fireplace is working. Stock up on your favorite teas. Your home is your oasis – make sure it feels that way!
