I’ve always loved snow. As a kid I loved the way it looked, the way it felt, but most of all the day off school that came with a heaping fresh layer of snow.
The problem for me was that I was born and raised in Israel, which is not known for epic snow falls. Thus, as a kid, my winter activities were limited to building snowmen and small, civil war-sized snowball fights. As an adult, I spent most of my travels chasing what many consider bad weather in snowy areas.
