Seven Reasons Snow Makes You A Happier Person

Updated on 21.12.2015 in Bits & Pieces

Why snow makes happy

The enchanting scene created by the first snowflakes swirling from the sky in late fall makes everyone cheer like children (whether in person or on social media such as Facebook): "It's snowing! It's SNOWING!!" And, all winter long, when I see those fat, fluffy flakes twirling, I feel happy.So, here are just some of the many, many reasons I love snow. Leave a comment with your own reasons you love snow!

1. The mountains are especially beautiful with freshly fallen snow.

The first fluffy layer of glittering snow makes Tirol truly look and feel like a winter wonderland.

2. The snow may melt, but your love will go on <3

Drawing a heart in the snow is a great idea that brings the heat despite the cold.

3. Riding downhill is much more fun than walking downhill.

Especially if you gained altitude, in search of the perfect downhill run, under your own steam. Freeriding gets those endorphins flowing!


Powder hounds don’t even need this reminder. It’s up there in the mountains, waiting for you. Go get it :)

5. Snow blowers are so much cooler than riding lawn mowers.

Objections, anyone :) ?

6. It’s quieter when it snows.

There’s nothing like being the first to leave footprints in a fresh layer of snow to get away from it all and to connect you with your surroundings.

7. It links us to childhood memories. It gives us fun games and treats.

It doesn’t matter how old you are: Slide! Make a giant snowball! Build a snowman! Make snow angels! Catch snowflakes on your tongue! Throw a snowball! Make an awesome snow fort! Your only limit is your imagination (and the amount of snow)…

Whether it’s a lesser-known destination or a random trailside attraction, nature lover Eva Thöni will be there with her camera in tow, eager to share her greatest mountain moments with you.
