8. RZR Tour in West Virginia
Just three hours from DC, Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia has been loved by Washington residents for a long time as a winter retreat. Crossing the steep slopes and a cobblestone village on top, as well as the steepest terrain under Mason-Dixon, Snowshoe also offers a unique winter tour by RZR, which is for a romantic escape.
The three-hour trip takes you deep into a secluded spot that serves a varied dinner at Sunrise Backcountry Hut ($ 219 / pair). Favorite dishes to be expected in the winter like beef stew and tilapia encrusted with pecan, washed down with local beer and wine, in this rustic cabin surrounded by greenery.
9. Snowbiking in Oregon
After trying an ice bike ride in Buffalo, head to the Hoodoo Mountain Resort in Oregon to try snowbiking. Here, the bike frame is mounted on a skateboard and the driver will race down the snowy slopes, reaching speeds of up to 135 m.p.h. Anyone who knows how to ride a bike and is passionate about stimulating activities will love this sport.
Once you understand how to play, there will be trails for a variety of skill levels and you even have to jump into the snow to navigate. With a fleet of 35 snowbike rentals and lessons for beginners, plus snowbike races and even a snowbiking spring festival, Hoodoo is undoubtedly the American snowbiking capital.
10. Snowshoe came to dinner in Idaho
From December to March, join us for a winter culinary adventure in McCall, Idaho. Snowshoe or cross-country ski to experience BYOB gourmet dinners at Blue Moon Yurt. This is a unique winter culinary experience deep in Idaho Ponderosa State Park.
The patrons pack drinks, straps on cross-country skiing or snowboarding shoes, then start the one-mile journey under the stars to the warm yurt where they are greeted with warm cider or hot wine. Yurt, nestled on the banks of Payette Lake, cozily surrounded a wood stove with common seats. A short welcome was done with light hors d’oeuvres before the start of the gourmet prix fixe meal. Your experience is to reserve a month because it is usually booked very quickly.
