Try snow tubing at Montage Deer Valley
via montagehotels.com Sure, you know Park City, Utah has some of the best skiing in the country, but the popular Montage Deer Valley resort also has its own snow tubing park. The tubing hill has a magic carpet feature to scoot you back up the hill as well, and the park is open from 2 p.m. until dusk. Nearby, you’ll also find sleigh rides, a toboggan-style alpine coaster, and a winter zip line across the snow. Don’t miss these destinations that are even better in the winter.
Sip winter’s sweetness at the Ice Wine Festival

This chilly January festival at Niagara on the Lake, Canada can reach temps of 40 degrees below zero but, as long as you can feel your fingers and toes, you can sip ice wine—made from frozen local grapes—from the ice bar in the town square. When you’re ready to warm up, sign up for a vineyard tour and go from winery to winery sipping and tasting small food pairings. (Words of wisdom: It’s hard to beat rich cheesecake topped with poached pears when it comes to ice wine matches.) Don’t miss the nine small American towns you’d swear were from Europe.
