Your Winter Bucket List

The Christmas decorations are down, holiday music is no longer on the radio, and leftovers are in the trash. Finally, a crisp, fresh start is in the air – and I am more than ready for the new beginning that January always welcomes. Including – adding some new things to my bucket list this winter. Check out the details here.

On our journey to sobriety or staying sober, it is vital to establish healthy habits. So why not have some of these activities be bucket list-worthy? We’ve done the research, now all you have to do is choose which one (or many) you would like to add to your new sobriety routine.

Check out your winter bucket list, share it with your friends, and comment on what you would like to try out the most.

Snow Tubing at The Summit at Snoqualmie Pass

Have you ever gone snow tubing or thought about flying down a mountain in a tube? Well, if this sounds interesting and something you want to try- then I highly recommend adding this to your winter bucket list.

This sobriety-friendly adventure is available at The Summit at Snoqualmie Pass, they are open Friday-Sunday through April, and tickets are affordable at $15/person. With almost two dedicated hours and everything you need on-site, prepare to delight while making new memories on your sobriety journey.

Get Outdoors

Living in the Pacific Northwest has its perks. One of them is having a plethora of things to do in our backyards. And you don’t have to spend money to have a good time. From checking out a local trail in McCormick Woods to feeling like a kid again and heading down the slides at Point Ruston in Tacoma. All of which are free and great activities to do while staying and becoming sober.

Take a Cooking Class

When you sign up for a class, anticipate discovering a new skill, making new friends, and deepening relationships with a night filled with laughter and good food. A must-have on your winter bucket list.

Head to Leavenworth

Less than a two-hour drive from the city, Leavenworth has so much to offer. From hiking to sightseeing, Bavarian-inspired culture and food. This charming little town is a must-do year-round, but especially in winter. Book a cabin in the woods, sit by the fire and read a good book. Go for a sleigh ride in town, stop by a local Bavarian food favorite, and make sure to get some shopping done, too. Or check out the sites on a snowmobile or try Nordic skiing. Either way, your cup will be filled when visiting here.

Razor Clamming at the Ocean

Winter is prime time to dig razor clams. The Pacific Northwest has some of the best local and accessible seafood around. If you are a seafood lover, adventure seeker, then this is the activity for you.

Before you head out, make sure to get a clamming license from Washington’s Department of Fish and Wildlife. Important dates and sites for razor clamming this season are listed below.

Dates: December-February
