Localized Snow

From our dining room we can see a chalet in the snow. You'll notice that there is no snow in front of the house.

That chalet is close to the ski slope. When the snowmaking equipment sprays snow on the slope and it's windy, snow blows it onto anything nearby.

On most cold winter nights, we can see clouds of snow billowing up from the other side of that hill, and we can hear the snow machines in the distance. Lights are on at the slopes and it looks pretty dramatic to have these white clouds rolling around against the dark sky.
