2016 was my first real season on skis, which just goes to prove our motto here on Bearfoot Theory that it’s never too late to start. Plus, a quick glance at our Instagram feed will prove that sometimes those mountain landscapes are even more gorgeous covered in snow.

But what if you don’t like to ski? Well we have a few other options for you. From skiing to snowshoeing to cross country hut trips, we have tips, destinations, and gear to help you get outside and enjoy winter.

Getting Started

When I moved to Utah a couple of years ago, I set a personal goal to learn better ski technique and to build my confidence on the slopes. Here are some posts to support you in taking the same step.

Finding the Best Resorts

Location, location, location. Where you choose to ski can largely affect your experience. Here are some helpful tips and reccs for picking the best slopes for you.

What To Do When You’re Burnt Out on the Slopes

Tired of those ski boots? Winter offers a diverse array of outdoor opportunities. Why not try out cross country skiing to a hidden backcountry hut or snowshoeing instead? Here are some of our favorite non-skiing winter posts.
