There’s something about snow, particularly the first few snowfalls of the year, that has the power to create a long-lasting memory out of an otherwise ordinary event.
For those of us who grew up in a climate with four distinctive seasons, the white stuff brings back fond childhood memories of that first white Christmas and, of course, all those glorious snow days.
Even if a snow day didn’t come to fruition, staying up late waiting for the snow to start falling was often an event in and of itself. The mere potential for a snow day is an intoxicating prospect for most kids.
Combining the power of nostalgia and the picturesque backdrop snow provides to almost any sport is almost always a winning combination. That’s why sports are always better in the snow!
