On Sunday February 8th, #mywildCanada Twitter chatters gathered to talk about this week’s topic: winter activities. It was amazing to see how many people embrace winter. Canadians love getting outdoors and playing outside in the snow in #mywildCanada.
After last night, one thing is evident – none of the #mywildCanada participants suffer from cabin fever! People who complain about the cold obviously don’t know what they are missing. Just look at the fantastic time these people are having outside.
If you have never gone tobogganing in Canada before – you have no idea the fun you are missing. It’s almost a Canadian right of passage! I remember my first toboggan – a green garbage bag – let me tell you – those things fly!
Most of Canada gets blanketed by snow, lots of snow! Walking in the deep snow is not possible – even though we all know this – we always get our boots full of snow trying!
When we want to get out and about in the snow, we put on a pair of snowshoes or a pair of skis.
It’s so peaceful on the trails in the winter. The clean crisp fresh air fills your lungs as you take in Canada’s awesome beauty.
Whether you are out by yourself, with your friend, your spouse, your friends or your family – #mywildCanada can be enjoyed by all in the winter. Just look at how much fun this looks, look how gorgeous it is to be outside in the woods in the winter:
It’s especially fun to be outside when it’s snowing. Watching the snowflakes slowly falling as you are skiing in the woods is breathtaking: Have you ever caught a snowflake on your tongue?
Many #mywildCanada contributors are quite the adventurers – would you try this?
No? Not for you? How about this? Would you like to try riding your bike in the snow?
What? That is still not going to get you outside? Wait, I know what will! Ice climbing!
#mywildcanada is full of adventurers. One of the best things about Twitter chats is meeting so many great like minded people.
Of course, those of us who have dogs – always bring them along on our adventures in #mywildCanada:
We like to bring our wild friends with us when we play outside. Because we all know that no one like to play outside more than our best companions!
Many of the people who come to chat on #mywildCanada are bloggers and photographers. So, if you like to see amazing photos and learn amazing things – then join us for #mywildCanada chats where amazing is everywhere:

Winter is a magical time in #mywildCanada
Winter camping is a pretty extreme winter activity. It’s not for the inexperienced; but with the right gear and the right knowledge – winter camping is a blast!
With winter camping – comes winter campfires!
Have you ever prepared a meal outside in the snow? Have you ever cooked over a campfire?
Hmmmm…. there is nothing like it. The fresh air – and the food gets a smokey flavor after it’s cooked over the campfire. It’s a wonderful experience.
Snowshoeing is another fun thing to do in the winter.
These lightweight aluminum “no name” snowshoes that we purchased for $60 (with a case) have served us well since 2007.
We love breaking new trails, going where no one has gone before…
The snow is over three feet deep in the forest. Without the snowshoes it would not be possible to be here.
Photography and shooting videos is another one of our favorite things to do in the winter.
Winter is a peaceful time of year. The forests are quiet. It’s a time for reflection.
Winter gives a new perspective – when the snow blankets the landscape.
What are you waiting for? Get dressed and get outside!
