    Though reading about all of these is fantastic, I’m slightly disappointed that Alaska didn’t make the list at all, there’s so many places to enjoy the snow, especially during their annual Fur Rendezvous event close to the time of the Iditarod races. They have ice sculputures and up further north toward Circle and Chena hot springs, there’s even an ice hotel where you can stay overnight and drink appletinis out of glasses made of ice.
