According to a oft-quoted Statistic Brain study, the most commonly made New Year’s resolution is losing weight. But it can be hard to stick to a resolution like this if you’re used to being a homebody in the winter. When January 1 comes around, it’s easy to choose a good book and crackling fire over bundling and braving the outdoors.
The Benefits of Frost & Fire
Yet, as a destination built on the spirit of play, we know that outdoor experiences and experiential travel can prime your body and mind for the year ahead. So we bring the cozy fire outside with our weekly Nordic Bonfire (see above), and supply all the gear, guides and warmth necessary to enjoy winter to the fullest. This year, we’re taking things a step farther and celebrating winter with new activities and a Frost & Fire winter fête between Valentine’s Day and President’s Day. Frost & Fire will celebrate the best adventures, farm-to-table cuisine, drinks and quintessential snowy moments in one winter getaway. If you’re looking for an inspiring way to start a new year with friends or a loved one, this is it!
Winter Getaways & Workouts
Winter getaways can also jumpstart your fitness goals. We’ve used our robust winter activities program and our own Montana winter experiences to inspire this blog. The Ranch at Rock Creek is a “choose your own adventure” of winter fun. We suggest guests channel their sense of childlike wonder and pick what suits their bodies and ambitions best—a heart-pumping workout or a serene, slow-paced wander.
Below is a list of our winter vacation activities in order of approximate calories burned per hour for a 150-pound person. If you can’t visit us at The Ranch, we hope they can inspire you to get out before it’s too late and these amazing workouts are gone again for another year. Read more…
