December is (Almost) Here! Plan Your Winter Outdoor Adventures Now!

Don't Let Cold Weather Stop You From Getting Outside!



It’s just about December, which means winter has arrived for much of the country! For many, this means an end to the majority of their outdoor adventures until things begin to thaw and temperatures begin to rise. For others, that first snowfall represents yet another new beginning: the dawn of the season for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, sledding, snowball fighting, ice skating, ice fishing, and so much more.


Our friends at Snowcap Video Solutions certainly fall in the latter category, and are getting extremely excited as the first few snowfalls begin to grace their New England home. We worked with them to create a video highlighting some amazing winter activities while also showing off just how beautiful and majestically serene winter landscapes can get. Check out videos like this, trip reports, camping and road tripping playlists, and so much more on our YouTube channel!

And though the weather may be getting colder and colder, that doesn’t mean you have to stop camping or hiking - but you may want to put a little more thought into preparation prior to doing so. We can help with that! Check out this blog post from last year outlining some great tips for cold weather camping and hiking from your friendly neighborhood team of Pathloom pros.


Feeling even more ambitious? Plan a backpacking trip! Check out our extensive Winter Backcountry Camping Guide series, highlighting trip planning and safety, proper gear to bring along, and helpful tips for food preparation and staying hydrated!
