Snow is something that most people are delighted to see during winter – as long as it’s in moderation. A few inches here. Maybe even a foot is enough to bring out the inner child in everyone. So, could you imagine living somewhere with so much snowfall, that is known as one of the snowiest places on earth?
Top 5 Snowy Places
If you are a snow-avid and want to see some major snow, book yourself a trip to these top five snowy places!
#1. Aomori City, Japan
Hailed as the “Snowiest Place on Earth”, Aomori City receives more than 300 inches of snow a year.
Facing south towards the Hakkoda Mountains, Aomori City is said to receive its heavy snowfall due to its geographical location. Since the city is in close proximity to the mountains it has higher elevations in which the cold air collides and quickly forms snowy precipitation.
Aomori City has almost 300,000 residents that still manage to get around the snowy city via highways and railroad.
#2. Sapporo, Japan
The host of the 1972 Winter Olympic games, is Sapporo, the 2nd snowiest place on earth. Situated in the same country as our number one city, Sapporo is known widely known for its snowfall. It is even celebrated annually at the Sapporo Snow Festival.
On average, Sapporo receives nearly 200 inches of snowfall a year. And, with so much snow on the ground and different activities available during the winter months, it’s no wonder the city of Sapporo attracts more than 10,000,000 tourists and visitors yearly.
