What Do You Like About Snow?

I know a lot of folks are dealing with the bad aspects of winter weather at the moment BUT I would like to know what you all like about your snowy region when it's not terrible.

I've lived in Southern California all my life and have seen snow maybe 6 times in 27 years. I had to go out of my way to find it, like driving 3 hours to a mountain or flying across the country (or to Japan). Every time I see snow, I get super excited and want to play in it. My favorite thing to do is make snow angels. My little sister moved to an area where it started snowing and she literally Skyped me to show me the flurries coming down, she was so jazzed.

So GT people, what's great about your snowy locale?
