Active Winter Wellness Retreats to Make the Most of the Snow

Jan 27, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. ET

While we're totally on board with the concept of hygge and embracing bundling up and staying in during the cold winter months, there's something so invigorating about stepping out in the cold and doing something active. With the right coat, scarf and boots, the snow-covered outdoors is your oyster, with plenty to do even when there's a chill in the air. For those of us who aren't fans of hot, humid weather and are prone to sweating a lot, winter is the ideal time to experience outdoor exercising.

The problem is many of us don't live in areas where this is possible. That's why we've put together this list of winter-weather destinations in the United States that offer a range of outdoor experiences — from snowshoeing to curling to relaxing in a mineral-infused hot tub — that will actually make you look forward to playing in the snow again.
