Hello, everyone! We at Team Visionary hope that you’ve had a great week. The snow’s certainly coming in fast and hard in some parts of the world — we hope that everyone is staying nice and warm indoors with a nice cup of hot chocolate (or warm beverage of your choice)! Of course, there are also some parts of the world that aren’t getting snowfall at all… Whether that’s a blessing or a curse is up to you to decide!

But no matter what the climate is outside your window, you can always slip into a comfy sweater and enjoy a merry white holiday — in Minecraft! Today, we have a spectacular list of the newest and best winter-themed Minecraft Survival Maps to kick off 2021 for you guys.

Aptly named, Ski by Lifeboat is certainly a unique take on survival spawns, consisting of a massive ski resort full of rolling, snowy hills of varying difficulties, offering players a chance to cross country or downhill ski.

This map adds a TON of unique, custom content, from animations to travel mechanics. We’ll try to cover them all! Firstly, it comes with ten challenging ski trails.  Even if you’re an expert at maneuvering over snowy mountains in real life, you might find these hills a little challenging! Difficulty levels range from Bunny Hill to Black Diamond, and every trail comes with unique mechanics and animations. 

But that’s not all! If you get bored of skiing, you can also go snowboarding with your friends, or drive around a snowmobile and enjoy the breathtaking views. Lastly, it also comes with 5 free skins to keep you warm while you ski. Compete with your friends to see who can get the highest scores!
