Three Ways to Convince Your Friends to Go Camping With You This Winter

Three Ways to Convince Your Friends to Go Camping With You This Winter

During the winter, tent, RV or cabin camping life can be an incredibly unique and rewarding experience. But that’s only if you don’t go it alone — camping by yourself in the winter isn’t fun for anyone involved.

The idea of camping in tents or cabins, however, isn’t something many people are thinking about doing during the winter months. That’s why you’re going to have to convince your friends to go camping with you if you want to experience the thrill of the great outdoors this season!

To get your friends on board for a wintertime camping trip, here are three great ways you can convince them:

Ask that crazy, risk-taking friend you have

We all have that friend — the one who lives on the thrill of taking risks and walking away from near-death experiences unscathed. We don’t know how they do it, but we do know that they’re almost always willing to go on a winter camping trip. With another person by your side, convincing your other, less-than-willing friends will become incredibly easy.

Get your friends on board by playing up the novelty

There’s no way you’ll convince anyone to go on a winter camping trip with you if you don’t make the experience sound like a life-changing novelty. Remind your friends that everything looks better covered in snow; that all their favorite trails will be completely empty; that the campsites will be pristine and trash-free during the off-season. Best of all? You get to wear snowshoes!

Take advantage of better campsites

During the summer, it’s almost impossible to secure a camping spot at the most in-demand sites. However, the winter opens up a much wider availability of much nicer camping spots, which can even include cabins with all the essentials and amenities if your friends aren’t interested in entering survival mode. When your friends know all that the outdoors has to offer during the winter, you’ll have no trouble getting a group together to experience it!
