Snow

Few things can romanticize a scene as effectively as a beautiful, heavy snowfall. Blizzards immediately get the adrenaline pumping. Whether you enjoy skiing in the Swiss Alps, or having coffee on a snowy winter's night on the Champs Elysee - this is the place to transcend where you are - and imagine yourself in a snowy wonderland.

Big snow facts
Snow comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. The snowiest state is Alaska. Valdez, Alaska, recevies an average of 326 inches of snow every year. The snowiest city in the lower 48 states is Mount Washington, New Hampshire, which has an average snowfall of 260 inches each winter. The largest snowflake on record is featured in the Guinness Book of World Records. It measured 15 inches wide and was 8 inches thick. The largest snowman recorded was a 122 foot snow-woman built in Bethel, Maine in 2008.

Unusual Snow facts
Inuit tribes are constantly surrounded by snow. Snow isn't always white. In the Victorian era, when the air was heavily polluted by smoke from factories, the snow was often dark gray. In places with red soil, like Prince Edward Island, snow can be pink. Snow is classified as a mineral. It is a myth that the Inuit have 100 words for snow. A man nicknamed "Snowflake" Bentley photographed 5,000 snowflakes in 1885 before he died of pneumonia. Twelve percent of the earth's surface is covered permanently in a layer of snow. People who are afraid of snow have chionophobia.
