We all love warm vacation spots as most people soak up the sun and spend idle time on the beaches. But, when it comes cold or winter vacation spots, you would find a few who would say – We love to shed down the side of a mountain with fresh powder or we love ice-skating on an icy pond or a lake. In addition to this, people actually can keep themselves hydrated in the heat or hot weather by drinking water and fresh juices.
