Here Are 7 Things To Love About Winter In Wyoming
When winter lasts most of the year, it’s easy to start to tire of it right around January – and get downright sick of it come April. However, winter in Wyoming is actually pretty awesome. The only things better than snuggling up inside when it’s cold and snowy outside are the epic outdoor activities that come with the wintry Wyoming weather.
Some people view the winter as the price they pay for living in such a glorious place, but we think it is just one more wonderful thing about the Cowboy State. Need some convincing? Here are 7 things to love about winter in Wyoming.
1. Spectacular scenery
When winter sprinkles a dusting - or even dumps a pile - of snow on the landscape, Wyoming is transformed into a winter wonderland. The only things that rival Wyoming winter scenery are Wyoming vistas in the spring, summer, and fall.
2. Amazing spas
You don't have to wait for winter to pamper yourself at one of the world-class spas scattered around the state, but it is the perfect time for it. In fact, January through March is a terrific time to relax and rejuvenate in preparation for the year ahead, and the serene, restorative surroundings you'll find at any Wyoming spa is just the place to do it.
3. Winter sports such as skiing...
Some of the best ski resorts in the country are right here in Wyoming.
...tubing and sledding...
...and the other kind of sledding.
Whether you want to watch a race or take a ride on an actual dog sled, you can do both in Wyoming.
4. Wildlife tours
Tons of wildlife are active in Wyoming all winter long. Several outfitters and tour companies are available to take you on a sightseeing expedition of national and state parks or other wilderness areas to get a glimpse of Wyoming wildlife in winter.
5. Heavenly hot springs
One of the side effects of the volcanic activity in Wyoming are the geothermal hot springs scattered across the state. Many take advantage of the medicinal benefits of our natural hot springs all year long but, seriously, nothing feels as good as slipping into the steaming hot water when there's snow on the ground and temperatures dip below 40 degrees. It's enough to make you actually look forward to winter in Wyoming.
6. Coffee shops and bakeries
Wyoming has loads of quaint coffee shops and
perfect for ducking into to get out of the cold. Who doesn't love wrapping their hands around a toasty mug of coffee or hot chocolate and indulging in a moment of quiet time?
7. Getting cozy
Whether you enjoy the outdoor aspect of winter in Wyoming or not, it has to be said that sitting by the fire with a warming drink when it's snowy and cold outside is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon or evening. Between October and May in Wyoming, you get plenty of opportunities to do just that.
