It's been a very cold couple of days, as you may know if you live in New England. It can be pretty easy to complain, but there are plenty of ways to find refuge when it feels like -30 degrees outside.
1. Stay inside
|If my home looked like this, I'd probably never leave.|
2. Dress appropriately
It amazes me to see people outside with shorts and a hoodie on in the winter weather. You're not only going to be cold, but you can get very sick! Invest in a good, warm winter coat, and don't forget your hat, scarf, and gloves. Warmth is priority, but you can look good too while still layering up.

4. Embrace the winter weather
Although below freezing is a tad too cold to ski, most of the winter is bearable. Enjoy the beauty that Vermont has to offer! The Wilderness Program offers so many options for every season, including winter! The Smuggs Pass allows you to ski or board all season long for only $65 with a free shuttle every Saturday and Sunday. There are also trips for snowshoeing, ice climbing, cross-country skiing, and more! Vermont is gorgeous, and it would be a shame to give it all up just for a little cold weather!
