Where I’ve Seen Snow Around The World

With all the snow falling in Portland in the last couple of days, I’ve been in a snow craze and inspired by it I started thinking about all the places I’ve seen snow around the world.

I have experienced snow in 9 different places across a few different countries. In chronological order, here are photos of the places where I’ve had the pleasure to play with snow.

1. Vail, Colorado, USA

I was very young the first time my parents took me here to learn skiing. I remember asking my mom if I could swim in the outdoor pool, which had pieces of ice swimming in it. Somehow, my mom agreed (I never found out her true plan), but I lasted only a couple of minutes in it, and my older brother had to suffer for me, because they didn’t allow me to swim by myself.

I was maybe about 12 years old when I was with my mom and my brother in some building in NYC and suddenly the snow started to fall. There was a big window where we could see it from inside. It was a nice moment.

3. Whistler, BC, Canada

At some point in time, my family decided to try Whistler for skiing instead of our traditional Vail, and it was amazing. We returned 3 years in a row. I really miss those trips.

4. Val d’Isere, France

In 2007, one of my best friends invited me to go ski with her family in France. It was a blast.

5. London, England

I lived here for a year, and got to hang out with London’s snow before I went back home for the holidays.

6. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA

This is where I first saw snow on a beach. I don’t know how common this is, but it snowed when my husband and I were there in the winter of 09-10.

7. Durham, North Carolina, USA

My hubby and I experienced two winters with snowfalls in Durham in 2010 and 2011. These pictures were taken at the Duke Gardens, in Durham.

  1. I was not expecting Myrtle Beach!


  2. Wow.. Beautiful pictures 🙂 I’ve always been fascinated by snow cos growing up in the south of India, snow was a fantasy for us! I experienced my first snow fall in Paris last year and I can still remember my excitement on the first day!


    1. Paris sounds like an amazing place to experience snow for the first time!


  3. Well, I’ve experienced snow in many parts of Canada but not yet in U.S. I just haven’t been to the U.S. when it snowed. Nor Europe –even though I’ve been there 3 times.

    Glad you enjoyed Whistler, BC.
