Winter is now here in full swing and some people might be starting to feel the winter blues. This often makes people forget how much this season has to offer! There are so many incredible winter activities taken for granted that can honestly give you so much joy and exhilaration! Between downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snowshoeing, tobogganing, and dog sledding, the possibilities are endless to find something that appeals to you. Below are listed a couple of our favorite places to partake in winter activities in North America (and the world!).

Whistler, BC - Canada

Who says that magic has to fade after Christmas? If that,'s the rule, then winter wonderland Whistler, British Colombia did not get the memo. Home to the Whistler Blackbomb, North America's largest ski resort, and the Olympic stadium, there are so many unforgettable experiences just waiting to happen here!
