48. Neo-pagan rituals
We’re partial to those that prominently involve corpses (Nederland, Colorado’s Frozen Dead Guy Days, during which a revered body kept in a local shed is feted), a combination of ski jumps and fire (Crested Butte’s Vinotok), or five-story papier-mâché dolls symbolizing gloom (Santa Fe’s Zozobra).

49. Class III rapids 

50. Grilling in the snow
Is it something about making fire when it’s cold? Or just the undeterrable love of cooking outside? Does it matter? 

51. The North Face Base Camp Duffel
Super-durable and versatile (you can wear it as a backpack). From $90.
