According to the Farmers Almanac, we should expect a cold winter. This doesn’t have to put a damper on your winter plans.
Sure you could go to Florida, with everyone else, or you could plan snow vacations for your friends and family.
Read on to learn the tips to plan your next snow vacation like a pro.
How to Plan Epic Snow Vacations
Planning any vacation takes some preparation but if you follow these tips, you can plan a vacation to a winter wonderland. If you need help to book travel, there are pros that can help ensure everyone in the family has a great time.
What Do You Want to Do?
First, take into account what activities you and your family enjoy.
Are their young kids involved? Do you ski? Looking to ice Fish?
This will determine which part of the winter world you should focus your search. If you are traveling with multiple ages, make sure that there are activities for the young and old.
Many ski resorts have tubbing hills for those that do not want to ski. Consider putting kids in lessons to teach them to ride like a pro and give parents a needed break.
Plan on a mix of activities. Exercising outside can be tiring because you are working out and trying to keep warm.
How to Pack
Obviously you will pack for the activities that you might do but think about a few other things for your winter bag.
Cold air chaps lips and skin, so include chapstick and moisturizers even if you don’t use them regularly at home.
Make sure your outfits have layers. Layers will keep you warm outside but allow you to determine how much you need to stay warm inside on the skating rink, for example.
Don’t forget the shoes. You will want shoes with rubber soles so that you can easily navigate any icy patches.
If your goal is to see snow you have to understand that it can cause travel plans to change. Keep an eye on the weather and if it changes, be flexible.
If you are driving, make sure you have enough gas and extra water, food, and blankets in the car. It will make your traveling companions happier in the event of a weather delay or issue.
If you are flying, consider travel insurance. That way if the snowstorm hits before you land at your favorite resort you are not out your money for a trip you don’t get to enjoy.
Armed with these tips, you can plan a snow vacation that your family will never forget.
