So if youre looking for some memorable experiences, or have a non-skier in your group, here are some other activities to try. 1. HIKING & SNOWSHOEINGHiking isnt just reserved for summer - winter is the perfect season to get out into the mountains on foot. Most ski resorts have well-signposted hiking trails meandering through stunning valleys and mountain passesthe only di erence in winter is that the trail may be covered in a white blanket of fresh snow. If its deep, rent some snow shoes (basket-like frames that attach to your boots and spread your weight more evenly on snow) in your local resort. Then head out on the trail, breathe in the crisp, dry air, spot wildlife and enjoy the peace and quiet.2. HUSKY SLEDDINGMush!
