Snow days have a wonderful knack for turning us all into kids again. While you're forced to trudge into work, you can't help but wish that you could ditch the office for the day in favour of sledging, skating, and of course, building snowmen.
So while the "beast of the east" hammers much of the UK, we've rounded up the coolest locations to dig our your waterproofs and build a snowman to remember!
Around twenty miles north of Vancouver lies Whistler, the mountain range on every snow sport lover's bucket list. With the resort largest ski range in North America at around 8,000 acres over two mountains, there's enough snow to build a whole army of snowmen!
New York City, USA
Nowhere does winter quite like New York. With an unbeatable atmosphere, the city enjoys annual snowfall around winter time. While the city looks impressive all year round, we think thick snow looks especially good on the Big Apple. Skip the shopping trips and take to the streets to create a city-slicker snowman!
The Scottish Highlands
Ok, we know Scotland is still in the UK, but hear us out: not only do the Highlands make an excellent snowy staycation, they're also a paradise for those who love outdoorsy activities! From hiking to sailing around the many lochs, the scenic Highlands are an excellent choice for going back to snowy, peaceful nature.
