Alaskans are an outdoorsy bunch. All year round you can find us exploring our beautiful state no matter the weather or temperature. We love being outside in the winter. But you know what else is true? We love being inside in the winter, too.

So much so that we created a holiday campaign around “Celebrate the Great Indoors” with telecom client, GCI. Outdoors is who we are, but even a dog team can be entertained indoors.

That’s why, in the spirit of the season, we’re sharing a short list of things that keep us entertained when the weather outside is frightful and we don’t want to leave our fireplaces and cozy blankets. The snow shovel and trails will still be there for us tomorrow.

Movies to curl up on the couch with:

  • A Christmas Story
  • Klaus
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
  • Spiderman into the Spiderverse
  • Home Alone
  • Out of Africa

Podcasts to unwind with:

  • Smartless
  • Making Space
  • Beach Too Sandy, Water Too Wet
  • This American Life
  • Modern Love
  • Serial Productions

Video games to play solo or with friends:

  • Stardew Valley
  • Minit
  • Mario Kart

Board games for family fun (or family drama)
