Ways to Chill On Your Snow Day

Ways to Chill On Your Snow Day

A snow day is your chance to have a no-excuses play day - especially if you don’t have to spend your time shoveling your walk and driveway. Need some ideas? We’ve got you!


If you’d rather cozy up inside, you could start your day with a workout or explore a mindfulness practice. Set your intention to do something good for yourself. (You already did, though, when you thought ahead and got HeatTrak mats.)


Then, you might want to channel that energy into tackling that closet clean-out you’ve been putting off all year. You’ll find treasures you’ve forgotten about, and anything you can’t use anymore can go into piles: donate, gift, toss. And probably a “maybe” box for things you might want to keep.


After you’ve had a productive morning, you could spend the rest of the day binging a series you’ve never gotten to - or maybe have a themed movie marathon? Summer blockbusters are great for this, but so are quiet indies that just call for drinking warm tea under a blanket. And if you order delivery, they’ll be thankful that you’ve got a clear walkway that will make the trip to your door safe and easy.


But why would you want to stay inside when there's a winter wonderland out there to explore? Throw a snow day party! With HeatTrak snow and ice melting mats, your driveway will be ready for a tailgate or a beach-themed shindig. You’ve got a toe-warming, snow-free dance floor, too!


Whether you’re chilling with your besties or throwing an impromptu block party, it’s a great time to have an outdoor photo booth or video shoot. Grab some props and your pals, and make some model poses. We know that furry friends are ready for their close-up when they discover your heated mats, too. You could even bring out a drone for a share-worthy movie.


Don’t forget the drinks! We love to set up a DIY cocoa station so friends can customize their own drinks with mini marshmallows, candies, coconut flakes, fun-flavored syrups, and peppermint sticks for stirrers. For those who partake, some dark rum, peppermint liqueur, kahlua, and vanilla vodka can add flair. If cocoa seems too sweet for you, hot toddies or mulled wine can warm it up - and cool cocktails can be made with snow instead of ice, because new-fallen snow is a fun secret ingredient.


However you want to spend your snow day, with HeatTrak Mats you don’t have to deal with shoveling or spreading salt. We’d love to see you celebrating your snow day on your HeatTrak Heated Snow & Ice Melting Mats. Capture your best photo and video of your HeatTrak Mats in full snow-day party mode to submit for a chance to win $500 in our annual photo contest. (Memes are funny, but not eligible.)


Happy Snow Day!
