Budget Winter Outdoor Activities

Budget Winter Outdoor Activities

During wintertime, we traditionally head inside to stay warm, drink cider, and sit by the fire. Yet, by the time January rolls around, you might be feeling some pretty serious cabin fever. Don’t let the cold keep you inside. Check out these four free (or next to free) winter activities and you and your friends will be having fun in the snow in no time.

Venture Out Ice Skating

Ice Skating is a fun outdoor activity that’s available through the entire winter. Nearly every town, big or small, has an ice skating rink that’s open to the public. The majority of skating rinks charge minimal fees for ice skates and to enjoy the rink. Some rinks may even be free if you bring your own skates! Ice skating is an awesome, affordable way to get together with your friends, get out of the house, and get a little exercise. If you own your own skates and live near a pond, you can go gliding over the ice for free, but be 100% certain that the ice will hold before you go out on it.

Take Up Sledding

There’s no thrill like sledding down a hill on a sunny winter day – and this activity isn’t just for kids anymore. Sledding is a free way to get out and enjoy the snow with your family and friends without paying a dime. You can even pack a picnic lunch, complete with a thermos of warm soup, to keep the chill away while you stay out of the house all day.

Host Outdoor Winter Olympics

Snowball fights, snowman building, igloo construction, and sledding races may seem like ordinary winter outdoor activities, but you can bring them together to host your own outdoor winter Olympics – with your friends and family as the participants. This fun-filled outdoor day doesn’t require any spending, unless you want to spent $5 or $10 on some thrifted trophies for the winners. Your outdoor winter Olympics will help your family and friends bond and makes for a great budget activity.

Go on a Winter Photo Walk

If you’re artistic, winter offers a great opportunity to take some unique photographs of your surroundings. A blanket of snow turns the ordinary extraordinary, and there’s no better time to grab your camera and head outdoors. Once you’ve bundled up and ready to shoot, you may be tempted to stay outside all day. The best part? When you use a DSLR camera or the camera on your phone, you won’t spend anything while enjoying this budget winter outdoor activity.
