Winter Adventuring

Winter might seem like an off-season for ziplines and challenge courses, but many adventure parks operate year-round! A brisk zipline tour can be an invigorating experience. Snowy scenery is another wintertime perk and on clear days you can take in the view for miles. Climate conditions can vary, so make sure you check the forecast before heading out for your next excursion and layer up. A wind breaker and hard shell pants are essential for staying warm while zipping at high speeds. Warm gloves are also a must-have, just make sure to pick a pair that allows your fingers to stay nimble so you can effectively operate zipline equipment. Hand warmers are also great to have along in your pockets. They keep the blood flowing to your hands and provide a comforting warmth. Hot coffee and cocoa are also great to pack along.

Indoor Opportunities

There are also many challenging, well-designed indoor climbing courses. These courses provide fresh climbing experiences that can be a nice change of pace from the climbing gym. A large indoor course can give you a great work out as well. Ropes courses, climbing walls, ladders, and many other climbing structures await indoors. You can’t beat the comfort and convenience of climbing indoors and indoor adventure courses provide a novel experience that can be a full-day activity with you and your friends. Climbing, jumping, and generally monkeying around while securely fastened in a harness is a lot of fun too. If you search your local area, you will likely turn up a surprising number of these indoor recreational parks nearby.
