Fall and Winter Activities

Fall and Winter Activities

Fall and Winter can be a difficult time of year for teens, who may feel cooped up and bored without the chance of participating in summer activities. However, it’s important to remember that getting outside and enjoying the outdoors is still critical for teens – but also a lot of fun. With so many options in this area of the country, there is never a lack of things to do – and self confidence grows as they learn to do things they have never been exposed to before.

When the temperatures cool off In the fall, the kids cannot spend as much time in the water anymore, which means it’s time for backpacking and mountain biking again. But we offer excursions to sporting events as far away as Spokane in Washington in our quest to keep young minds filled with a sense of adventure.

During the winter months, clients are on skis a lot—at Schweitzer Mountain, for example. There is also snowshoeing, ice fishing, ice skating, as well as cross-country and downhill skiing. Most of the teenage clients at Turning Winds have never seen mountains like the Montana Rockies. When they experience the backcountry on hikes and from lookout towers, they are often astounded at the grandeur because they have never really seen anything like it in their life. It’s an extremely valuable experience for them.
