Before the winter jacket becomes the quintessential piece of apparel, we have a list of things that you want to do while it is still warm. Some of them could be done in the snow, but they are more fun in the sun.

  • Take the boat to Alcova or Pathfinder one more time

    The water is still urging you to make some wakes. The fish are still biting. Before the necessary winterizing of the boat, make sure to hit the lake before it ices over.

  • Make a trip to Denver

    As much as we hate to admit it, there are some things you can’t find in Wyoming. So why not make that last spring trip to Denver before you have to worry about if a storm is going to hit. Hit up Cabela’s. Go to a concert or game. Take the family to Casa Bonita. You will have to deal with the nasty traffic until you get back to Wyoming.

  • Shop for bargain deals on summer items

    A lot of the outdoor shops and even big box stores are getting rid of their summer items. It is a great time to get good deals on items like swimsuits, sandals, bikes, and more. You will have to hunt more than normal, but you can pick up some great values.

  • Hit the trails

    Before things get snow packed, it may be your last chance to kick up some dirt. Whether that is on an ATV, motorcycle, mountain bike, horse, or on foot, get outside and hit the trails.

  • One last summer time party

    Before the snow and ice come to Wyoming for their 9-month visit, why not throw one last summer party. Cook up some burgers and hotdogs. Have a fire pit and roast marshmallows. Don’t forget the potato salad.
