Instead, stay inside with a good book and a large mug of hot chocolate. Play games with your friends, like Trivial Pursuit, Scruples, or Pictionary, or study and "get ahead". There is no need to lose hope when Winter creeps in, So, maybe there Isn't a whole lot one can do outside of Montreat— so enjoy what you have.
