Well, it’s that time of year again – the snow is officially everywhere, the temperatures have begun to be close to 0°. It’s Winter down Here.
Which, for those of us who chase powder, means it’s time to start thinking about heading north with some snow gear – Japan, Canada, Austria, France – you name it, we want it.
If you’re one of the above, chances are you’ve already booked tickets, waxed your board or skis, and psyched yourself up to draw some fresh lines in foreign countries.
But there’s one thing you might not have remembered. Snow, y’see, is a whole lot different up in the great Northern Hemi. It’s thick and it’s thorough, and for the most part, it puts our local mountains to shame.
