Five Reasons to love SNOW!

Five Reasons to Love Snow:

1. Snow Brings Out the Inner Child

Kids love snow and the older we get the more we realize that being a kid is actually the most magical time of our lives. Playing in, riding on, and throwing snow at each other helps us remember (and rekindle) that magic but with the added appreciation of adulthood.

2. Snow is Soft

Everyone knows making mistakes is a key part of learning anything. On skis or a snowboard this usually means falling on your face and/or butt. Falling is how you get better but snow beats concrete, gravel or dirt every time.

3. Snow Makes Everything Beautiful

Take some dead trees, a bunch of gross mud, even a broken down car and add a few inches of fresh white snow… instant postcard! Add fresh snow to an already stunning mountain landscape or an endless panorama of white peaks… well you get the picture.

4. Snow is Water

And water is life. We are all 55-60 per cent water and the earth itself is about 71 percent water. Science suggests moving water produces negative ions and negative ions produce positive vibes. This is one (of many) reasons ripping through pristine powder or frolicking in a pile of snow feels awesome (and makes après taste that much better). Yay Science!

5. Snow is Zen

Even if you aren’t into that sort of thing I challenge you to stare up at falling snow for five minutes and see if your mind doesn’t relax and zone out. And who’s mind couldn’t use a couple more minutes of rest these days? Bonus points for catching snowflakes on your tongue (there’s that magic of childhood again).
