I know this is old, but I finally have an update - I went to the snow!
I started this thread the same month that I joined, about 8 or so years ago now. In 2019 I finally got to experience the snow
It was at a ski resort, though we didn't stay there and didn't go skiing, but they had areas where you could do other things. I went with my partner and her family; we built a snowman, threw snowballs, went snow sledding down a hill... it was amazing! Oh and we made a bunch of snow angels
! I've wanted to try making them ever since I was a kid watching others do it in TV shows. I tried replicating it at the beach a couple of times, but it's just not the same as doing it in the snow.
Now, I must admit it wasn't during Christmas (or the Christmas season), so I'm yet to experience a white Christmas - but regardless it was amazing.
Still on my list of things to do:
Experience a white Christmas, and
Go to the snow while it's snowing! For some reason I never considered the possibility that it might not snow when I'm there
ah well, another thing to look forward to :)
