Stag do in the snow

It turns out your friend not only decides to get married, but is doing it in winter. As tying him to a post in his underwear may not be the best thing for his health, even though it’s what you’d most like to do, we’re going to give you some ideas for celebrating the stag do in the snow. Although leaving him naked in the street is still an option, just in case.

Considering that the Pyrenees are very close, stag dos in Barcelona can be easily organised with snow as the main feature. So put on your boots and follow us, because these ideas are promising.

Snowy excursion

If you like adventure, snow is the perfect setting. A trek is a different way to start the party, and it suits all levels, from those who aren’t used to walking much to those who can spend hours on the move. Just pick the right area for the excursion and make sure nobody gets lost. Although, wouldn’t it be hilarious if that dear friend who’s getting married doesn’t know how to get back and is late for his own wedding? That would also be a great joke (we’re so wicked).

Weekend getaway

Even though it’s cold, perhaps a short party doesn’t quite appeal to you. So, you could book a country house for stag dos and do whatever comes to mind. Looking at the snow outside while warmed by a fireplace isn’t a bad plan, right? And if there’s no storm, you might even be able to have a barbecue outside, because at the end of the day you’ll need to eat and enjoy the experience.

In the snow, you can do loads of things. For instance, you could build an igloo and imitate Eskimos making ice houses. Don’t think it’s easy to get the blocks to stay in place, so you might have to try more than once. Surely, over the weekend, you’ll manage to build one.

There are sports that can be enjoyed much more in the snow. If you like archery, the targets are much more visible against a white background, so this or other activities might suit this kind of stag do.

Skiing or snowboarding

It’s not a bad idea to celebrate stag dos in winter. If you like skiing or snowboarding, it can be the perfect excuse to organise a trip to the ski resorts in Andorra, where you can slide down and have fun as a group.

And if you don’t know how to ski, sledding is another great way to enjoy the snow. There are sleds for one, two or more passengers and although it’s not as exciting as skiing, it can be a very good alternative.

As you can see, there are quite a few ideas for celebrating stag dos in the snow. You just have to choose one and enjoy it with the rest. And if you then want to leave the groom naked tied to a post, even at the risk of catching a cold, there’s no reason one thing isn’t compatible with the other, you know.
