Après-Ski, Pandemic Style!

Posted by Kali Gillette on Jan 14, 2021 9:45:00 AM

 

Après-ski is a ritual. After a day of ripping it up on the slopes, there is nothing better than a cold beer and some tasty noshes with friends at the pub. Or enjoying a hot beverage, sitting around a fireplace, warming your cold fingers and toes. It's a way to commune, to swap stories, and to hold on to that last bit of camaraderie. So, what happens in a year where public gatherings are off-limits? You get creative! We'll gather again soon enough, but in the meantime, we've outlined some of our favorite pandemic-style, physically distanced entertainment to get you through this season. Hopefully, by next winter, we'll be back at the pub, toasting the powder gods and telling stories.

Winter Self-Care in Bozeman

Posted by Kali Gillette on Jan 5, 2021 9:30:00 AM

While winter is indeed beautiful in Bozeman, and the outdoor opportunities are plentiful, the short days and colder temperatures have a real effect on our bodies. The limited sunshine, which regulates our circadian rhythms, creates metabolic changes; serotonin, the feel-good neurotransmitter, is decreased, and melatonin, which makes us sleepier and more prone to sadness, is increased. During winter (and a pandemic), we tend to be less social, spending more time indoors and less time with other people. This time of year, in Bozeman, the sun is setting around 4:30 p.m., which makes the days seem incredibly short!
